Jordan Becomes Latest 
NCAA Scholar Athlete 

In the last few years, Sewanee stu- 
dents have been accumulating 
NCAA post-graduate scholarships 
at such a pace that the University 
has produced more such award-win- 
ners than any other college or uni- 
versity in Division III. 

The most recent NCAA scholar- 
athlete, selected in December, is 
Michael Jordan. He is Sewanee's 
sixteenth award-winner since 1964 
and its sixth in three years. 

Jordan, a three-year starting li- 
nebacker and captain of the 1983 
football team, was one of only 
twenty-five football players across 
the country to receive the coveted 

The latest award not only keeps 
Sewanee ahead of the California In- 
stitute of Technology among Divi- 
sion III institutions but it places the 
University in a tie for tenth with 
Princeton and Texas among all col- 
leges and universities. Quite a re- 
cord for a small university! 

The holder of five school records 
for tackles in a season and a career, 
Jordan has helped lead the Tigers 
to winning seasons every year he 
has played and is an all-conference 
performer in the College Athletic 

He is equally effective in the 
classroom and has a choice of sev- 
eral medical schools in which to be- 
gin studies next fall. As a senior 
biology major, he holds a 3.4 grade- 
point average. He is a Wilkins 
scholar and a member of Omicron 
Delta Kappa national leadership so- 
ciety. In addition he is^he student 
chief of the Sewanee Volunteer Fire 

Head Coach Horace Moore called 
Jordan the best example of a stu- 
dent athlete at Sewanee. 

"He is not only a team leader but 
a school leader and approaches ex- 
cellence in everything he under- 
takes," said Moore. "He has been a 
driving force in the success of our 
football team." 

DeBlois Challenge Gets A 
Rousing Good Answer 

The DeBlois Challenge has been rl xy, • 

Far sooner than even the most op- Challeng 1 
timistic volunteer or staff member 
dreamed, the million-dollar limit in 
the offer of Gerald L. DeBlois, C'63, 
has been reached and exceeded. In 
fact, while daily records of qualify- 
ing gifts were being kept, the devel- 
opment officers felt no urgency to 
check the total until the deluge of 
gifts arriving in December and Jan 
uary had been fully processed and 

The purpose of the Challenge was 
two-fold. The primary motive was U 
increase dramatically the number 
of alumni making gifts to Sewanee. 
But obviously in the pursuit of Cen- 
tury II's $50-million goal, the total 
number of dollars generated was 
also important. Both missions were 
well served. 

When the daily records were tal- 
lied late in January, the following 
statistics were revealed: 

—Alumni had given $399,080 to- 
ward the $3-for-$l Challenge 

—184 brand-new alumni donors 
had given $11,220 

— 516 former donors, who gave 
nothing last year, gave $140,449 

— 477 of last year's donors in- 
creased their gifts by a total of 

—therefore, 1,177 alumni can 
share pride in a successful answer 
to the challenge of Gerald DeBlois 


— the percentage of alumni mak- 
ing gifts to Sewanee has increased 
from 11.8 percent for the first Beven 
months of fiscal 1983 to 16 percent 
for the same period of fiscal 1984. 

But hold the phone! Vice-Chan- 
cellor Robert M. Ayres, Jr., is eo 
pleased with the results that he is 
currently seeking one or more other 
challenge gifts which will enable 
the completion of the Century II 
Campaign this calendar year. Mr. 
Ayres hopes that alumni who in- 
tended to respond to the DeBlois 
Challenge will respond generously 
in thanksgiving for what Mr. De- 
Blois has done. New gifts may earn

further challenge money, if it is 

'This challenge by Gerald De- 
Blois has focused the attention of 
alumni on the importance of their 
support," Mr. Ayres said. "I want to 
continue to reach out to them and 
demonstrate that their gifts have 
an impact on their alma mater in 
many ways. We cannot rest, and 
our alumni should not rest in their 

The Vice-Chancellor also praised 
Mr. DeBlois for the time he has 
given. As national vice-chairman of 

Century II, Mr. DeBlois continues 
to travel throughout the country at 
his own expense, calling upon major 
gift prospects. 

"We are grateful," said Mr. 
Ayres. "The University is grateful 
to Gerry DeBlois and grateful to all 
of our alumni who have been giving 
of their time, talents, and posses- 
sions. Sewanee is stronger because 
of them. 

"Because of what I have Been, 
there is no doubt in my mind that 
Sewanee will be even stronger next 
year and stronger in the years that 

Former Prime Minister to 
Address Conference 

Former British Prime Minister Ed- 
ward Heath will be the keynote 
speaker for the fifth Episcopal 
World Missions Conference to be 
held in Sewanee June 12-16. 

He is among several notable per- 
sons who will address the confer- 
ence theme, "The Church in Global 

The conference is being designed 
especially for people who wish to as- 
sume leadership in development ed- 
ucation in their dioceses. Preference 
is being given to diocesan teams. 

Development in this context is 
the process of improving the living 
standards of those who regularly go 
without the barest essentials and 
enabling them to pursue their own 
social, political, and 

The sessions will be concerned

development, with the church's role 
and mission, and with skills needed 
for planning and implementing de- 
velopment education programs.

Great Lectures Set for 
Summer Seminar 

This year's Sewanee Summer Semi- 
nar, July 8-14, will have an empha- 
sis on contrasting old, even ancient, 
ideas with the new. 

Henrietta Croom will help us 
reexamine evolution; William 
Clarkson will discuss political lan- 
guage, with examples from classical 
literature to contemporary Poland; 
and William Bonds's lecture is enti- 
tled "Variations and Continuity in 
Classical Motifs: from Mycenae to 
Madison Avenue." 

Harold Goldberg will explore, 
from an Asian perspective, "the war 
we can't forget," Vietnam, while 
Thomas Spaccarelli will give an 
eye-witness view in his lecture 
"Perspectives on Peace in Central 
America." Appropriately, John 
McCarthy will look at an American 
phenomenon of ancient origin but 
with modern peculiarities: "Cam- 
paign 84." 

Altogether the faculty members 
are creating a delightful program 
designed to enlighten and enter- 
tain. As in past years, participants 
will have plenty of opportunity for 
recreation in and around Sewanee.

Mediaeval Colloquium 

Theatre, its applications and influ- 
ences throughout the world, is the 
theme for the eleventh annual Se- 
wanee Mediaeval Colloquium April 
13-14. This theme is mundus thea- 
tri.theatrum mundi.

(see related story) will be presented 
by a group of Sewanee players di- 
rected by David Landon, who 
teaches theatre and French in the 

Principal lecturers for the collo- 
quium are Glynne W. G. Wickham, 
professor of drama emeritus, Uni- 
versity of Bristol, and O. B. Hardi- 
son, Jr., director of the Folger 
Shakespeare Library.

Other papers include "Late Medi- 
eval Corpus Christi Drama as Civic 
Ritual" by C. Clifford Flanigan of 
Indiana University and "A New 
Way to Look at Old Plays: Reclassi- 
fying the Moralities" by Christo- 
pher Shipley of Pennsylvania State 

Professor of history Edward B. 
King is in charge of the colloquium. 

Medieval Tales 

In conjunction with this year's Me- 
diaeval Colloquium, Sewanee's Pur- 
ple Masque will present Medieval 
Tales April 12-15 in Guerry Hall. 

Medieval Tales is an evening of 
theatre composed primarily of fa- 
bliaux, a type of short story in 
verse. It will also include songs, po- 
etry, and a farce or two. Among the 
pieces to be performed are such 
well-known fabliaux, as Estula, the 
Lay of Aristotle, and The Three 
Hunchback Minstrels. 

The fabliaux flourished as a liter- 
ary genre in France in the thir- 
teenth and fourteenth centuries. 
Usually humorous, they are by 
turns bawdy, uproarious, sardonic, 
fanciful, poignant, and wise. The sly 
peasant, the amorous priest, the 
slow-witted merchant, the deceiving 
wife, and the pompous saint are 
only some of the characters that 
people the rich world of these tales, 
a world where fools come to disas- 
ter, the clever thrive, and the unge- 
nerous are undone. 

The fabliaux, like much of medie- 
val literature, contain dramatic ele- 
ments and were written to be 
performed. Those who performed 
these tales, the medieval jongleurs, 
were often their authors. The jon- 
gleur— the word literally means 

joker — was an itinerant entertainer 
and often an unusually versatile 
performer. A poet, storyteller, and 
actor, he could also be a mime, a 
musician, an acrobat, a dancer, and 
a juggler. The historical origins of 
the jongleur are obscure, but they 
may well have been the descen- 
dants of Roman pantomimes. And 
just as the fabliaux may have 
evolved into more purely dramatic 
forms such as farce, in the late Mid- 
dle Ages the jongleurs may have 
banded together to form the first 
professional companies of actors. 

The evening will be performed by 
a company of student actors. They 
will seek to find a style that brings 
to full dramatic life the vigor, hu- 
mor, and wisdom of these remarka- 
ble texts. 

Conference on Women 

Keynote speaker for the Conference 
on Women, February 12-18, was 
Gail G. Thomas, psychotherapist 
and co-founder of the Dallas Insti- 
tute of Humanities and Culture. 
Extending the conference theme, 
"Into the Future: 1984," she spoke 
on "Coping with the Pandora 

Pandora, a goddess originally 
worshipped as the great earth 
mother and provider of all good 
things, became the "beautiful evil" 
in the eighth century when Hesiod 
wrote about Pandora's box and 
made her responsible for all the ills 
of mankind. 

"What we know," said Mrs. 
Thomas, "is that women offer 
within their own instinctual lives 
the great good of earth. When her 
image is used and when she is 
blamed for the ills of mankind, it is 
difficult for her to manifest the in- 
nate good within her. What hap- 
pens within culture when the 
feminine is not revered and not con- 
sidered to he a sacred thing, is that 
we use the earth and things of the 
material world as if they are unim- 
portant. We have a throw-away 

She said that women do not have 
to be more like men; they have a 
heritage of good in the material 
world through the Pandora myth. 

The week-long conference also in- 
cluded a panel of four couples 
speaking on dual-career relation- 
ships and a student-faculty panel 
examining what is male and fe- 
male. Speakers were artist and Is- 
lamic scholar Lois Ibsen al Faruqi 
on "Feminism and the Survival of 
Islamic Tradition," senior seminar- 
ian Carmen Guerrero on 'The Book 

of Ruth as a Model for Liberation," 
and author-researcher Dr. Marlene 
Boskind-White on "Women, Emo- 
tions and Food." 

Nurse and administrator Pauline 
J. Clark and the Reverend Robert 
Ross, T'66, priest and hospice foun- 
der in Alabama, spoke on "Hospice: 
A Feminine Perspective on Health 
Care." Ruth Campbell, executive 
producer for public affairs for Mis- 
sissippi Educational Television, lec- 
tured. Beverley Earle, attorney and 
affirmative action officer for Ben- 
tley College, spoke on "Sexual Har- 
rassment in the Workplace and 
Academe," and Laura Lieberman, 
artist and guest critic, spoke on 
"Women Working in the Arts." 
Crow Johnson, songwriter, singer, 
and instrumentalist, gave a concert 
and a workshop in songwriting. 

"Killing Us Softly," a film about 
women in advertising, and "Rosie 
the Riveter," a film about women's 
roles during World War II and af- 
terward, were featured several 
times during the week. Also shown 
was "Ninotchke" starring Greta

Potential in Theatre 
May Become Reality 

by Peter T. Smith 

A summer evening in Sewanee often includes 
the beautiful music of the different orchestras at 
the Sewanee Summer Music Center. This pro- 
gram, entering its twenty-eighth season, has 
long been a favorite for the many hundreds who 
flock to Sewanee each summer for relaxation and 
entertainment, as well as artistic enrichment. 

And yet, if current plans develop, the Sewanee 
Music Center would become one of several enter- 
tainment packages available to visitors to the 
Mountain. Imagine a weekend filled with the 
finest in music, theatre, dance, and film! All this 
and more would be available if the expansion of 
arts programming and facilities continues as 

The heart of those exciting prospects would in- 
clude a state-of-the-art performing and visual 
arts center to house the University departments 
of music, theatre arts, and fine arts. This facility, 
which would house art studios, galleries, class- 
rooms, dance studio, rehearsal studios, and of- 
fices and performance spaces, would feature the 
latest developments in modern theatrical tech- 
nology and equipment. 

The new building would consolidate all of the 
performing and visual arts and allow the indi- 
vidual departments to expand course offerings 
and arts programming. 

One of the major benefits of the new facility 
would be increased production capabilities in 
theatre and dance. At present, the department of 
theatre arts is housed in Guerry Hall, a 1,000- 
seat multi-purpose concert hall and theatre. This 
facility, which is excellent for large concerts and 
other performances, does not provide the flexibil- 
ity of space and facilities to support a full theatre 

Currently, the Sewanee Music Center utilizes 
Guerry Hall extensively during the summer 
months. With a new performance facility, sum- 
mer instructional programs in theatre and dance 
for university and high school students would 
complement the proposed professional summer 
theatre program and offer additional entertain- 
ment to residents and visitors to Sewanee. 

Improved facilities and summer programming 
in theatre are just two of several recent propos- 
als being developed by the department of theatre 

arts. The production schedule for Purple Masque, 
the University theatrical company, has been in- 
creased from three to six productions annually. 
Senior theatre majors direct a full-scale main- 
stage play, featuring faculty and staff in leading 
roles, as part of their degree requirement. 

The theatre department is now rehearsing a 
children's theatre production which will tour ele- 
mentary schools and day-care facilities through- 
out the area this spring. This project is also 
directed by a senior theatre major. 

Beginning next year, acting students will be 
given the opportunity to study for a semester at 
professional studios in New York and California. 
Classes in acting technique, improvisation, 
mime, dance, movement, fencing, stage combat, 
and related disciplines will be taught by profes- 
sional actors and directors for University credit. 
This plan will enable the serious student to 
study and work in a professional environment. 

Among other long-range goals of the theatre 
arts department are increased course offerings 
and opportunities in dance and film production. 

Preliminary plans call for a new dance studio 
in the proposed arts center complex. The depart- 
ment plans to offer additional courses in modern 
dance as well as folk and ethnic dance styles. 
These courses would complement the ballet and 
jazz classes currently being offered by the physi- 
cal education department. 

The development of a performing ensemble, 
the Sewanee Dance Theatre, would be a natural 
outgrowth of increased participation by students 
and members of the community in the dance 

Space would also be provided in the new facil- 
ity for a film/video studio which would allow in- 
terested students and staff to develop techniques 
in video and multi-image photography. Acting 
and directing classes would utilize videotape for 
instructional purposes while University adminis- 
trative departments could produce public rela- 
tions and promotional films and slide 
presentations for fund-raising and student 

Modern facilities, increased arts programming, 
and expanded course offerings would provide the 
prospective arts student with one of the finest 
educational choices in the Southeast. Certainly, 
the potential will exist for the University of the 
South to become a leader in arts education in 
this area. 

Now It Is in the Blood 

by Mary Beth Smith, C'84 

I first set foot on the stage in Guerry Hall two 
years ago in the bluegrass musical, The Robber 
Bridegroom. Little did I know that in the short 
time since then theatre would become such a big 
part of my life. The summer following my stage 
debut I found myself on a stage once again, but 
this time I was being paid for it. When I made 
the tremendous discovery that I could act and be 
paid to do it, I decided what I would do for the 
rest of my life. I must admit I had serious doubts, 
however, when that same summer I fell flat on 
my face as Louise during the ballet sequence of 
Carousel. Since then I have made an unconscious 
habit of falling on stage in nearly every show 
Fve done. Now, as an admittedly clumsy actress 
looking back over four years at Sewanee and two 

years of bruised body parts, I find myself faced 
with the task of writing an intelligent and, I 
hope, entertaining account of my experiences as 
one of the pioneer students of the theatre depart- 
ment. Because my last name ib Smith I will 
graduate this year between my two fellow thea- 
tre majors as the fourth student to graduate from 
Sewanee with a degree in theatre arts. It is al- 
ways exciting to be one of the first, but in gradu- 
ating from a growing department one feels 
regret at missing out on opportunities down the 

The changes that have occurred in theatre at 
Sewanee in just two years have been tremen- 
dous. When I was a sophomore, there was no per- 
manent department chairman. With the addition 
last year of Dr. Peter Smith in that position, the 
future of theatre here has brightened consider- 
ably. The theatre curriculum has been expanded 
and, as a result, many more students have be- 
come interested in the department. This in- 
creased interest is largely due to an increase in 
the visibility of the department in the area of 
play production. In one year we have boosted a 
production schedule of three plays per year to an 
incredible six full-length productions and a festi- 
val of one-act plays. The Sewanee community 
has been exposed to a variety of theatrical types 
and is beginning to take notice of what is hap- 
pening inside the edifice known as Guerry Hall. 
For this reason and many others the area of play 
production is extremely important and it is this 
area that I will focus on for the purpose of my 
first foray into journalism. 

A good producing theatre is an integral part of 
a working theatre education. To learn theatre 
one must do theatre, and do a lot of it. An under- 
graduate degree in theatre requires as much 
work backstage as it does onstage. A theatre ma- 
jor should know a great deal about all aspects of 
production, i.e. scenic design, lighting design, 
costume design, and stage management. Theatre 
education is as diverse as theatre itself and it is 
the aim of the department at Sewanee to teach 
as much about all of these areas as possible. 
Since we have, as yet, no faculty members to 
teach classes in many of these areas, we must 


It Is in the Blood cammed 

learn the hard way. No books or tests come with 
this method. If a mistake is made the production 
suffers. If a platform is not bolted together prop- 
erly or a light cue is missed, the unfortunate soul 
responsible is held accountable to the actor who 
breaks his leg or finds himself in the dark. Of 
course, ultimately, everyone involved is respon- 
sible to the audience and it is their reaction that 
determines the success or failure of an individu- 
al's work. This holds true for everyone from the 
director down to the stagehand. Thus, much of 
our education is derived from actual work on 
productions. Majors are encouraged to work on 
every play in some capacity. 

By the time I graduate I will have had first- 
hand experience in every area of play produc- 
tion. I have handled a wide variety of jobs from 
the very important to the menial. My responsi- 
bilities have ranged from directing a full-length 
production to pulling staples from the stage 
floor. I have searched second-hand stores for 
props, run a sound system, and sewn costumes. 
Theatre majors do the dirty work which never 
receives applause in addition to their moments of 
glory on the stage. 

One of the unique aspects of a Sewanee thea- 
tre education is the senior project requirement 
which is graded as part of the comprehensive ex- 
amination in theatre. This project usually takes 
the form of directing a full-length play. Accord- 
ing to modern trends the director has become 
what is known as the master artist of the thea- 
tre. Even having heard this over and over in my 
classes I had no real notion of what this actually 
meant. I soon found out. A director must be an 
artist, but the director must also be a diplomat, a 
task-master, and very emotionally stable. Direct- 
ing a play is the best experience a theatre educa- 
tion can offer. I directed a play by Ted Tally 
called Terra Nova which was presented in No- 
vember of last year. In doing so I became the 
first theatre major to direct a fully budgeted 
main-stage production. Terra Nova is a beauti- 
fully written account of Captain Robert Falcon 
Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition. The play 
was extremely challenging in many aspects, par- 
ticularly in the area of technical effects. Lights, 
sound, and slide sequences of the actual expedi- 
tion were a very important and exciting part of 

u .w hold 

r ,t Christ- 
mL..»ty theatre 
nth and I was 
jik involved 
we e more than 

the play. This was also an an 
sorely lacking, but not for lor. 
my own in any of these techn 
thing that I found out during 
mas vacation. My hometown i 
is presenting Terra Nova thi. 
invited to a party given by ev 
with the production. I think tl 
a little surprised by a 5'3", tw< 
director, and I was pleased to i md out that I 
could talk about every area of the production in- 
telligently. Our production at Sewanee turned 
out to be a wonderful success and one of my most 
enjoyable Sewanee experiences. The research 
into the historical background of the expedition 
was made extremely easy due to the Scott jour- 
nals given to the library in memory of Hudson 
Stuck, T92, H'07, Archdeacon of the Yukon. 
Through reading these journals I found myself 
becoming intensely interested in the five men 
who gave their lives in pursuit of the English 
ideal of honor. I directed all three members of 
the theatre department's faculty in the produc- 
tion which was an incredible experience. Not 
only did I get to tell them what to do for a 
change, but I was also able to watch three tal- 
ented professionals work. 

This brings me to write about what I feel to be 
one of the most valuable aspects of the theatre 
program here on the Mountain. Purple Masque, 
the producing organization of the College, is es- 
sentially a community theatre. Working in a 
production means acting with seasoned profes- 
sionals of the community as well as fellow stu- 
dents. The opportunity of working with these 
experienced actors is an invaluable one. The Se- 
wanee community is an amalgam of people, 
many with interest and experience in the area of 
theatre. It is a creative community and ideal en- 
vironment for the development of a first-rate 
theatre program. Sewanee will continue to be en- 
riched by the presence of theatre and I have cer- 
tainly been enriched by my experience here. A 
solid liberal arts background is an invaluable 
tool for the student of the performing arts, and, 
indeed, it is becoming the current vogue in the 
acting profession to advocate a sound education 
for the aspiring actor. Thus, I look forward to a 
career in the theatre secure in the unique educa- 
tional background that only an institution like 
Sewanee can offer.

A scene from Servant of Two Masters 

Theatre in the Liberal Arts 

by David M. Landon 

What is the place of theatre at Sewanee and in 
an institution devoted to the liberal arts? Should 
it, indeed, have a place? From Plato to the pres- 
ent day there have been many in our civilization 
who, far from considering theatre an appropriate 
pedagogical activity, have been concerned to root 
out of culture the theatre impulse. They thereby 
acknowledge the power of that impulse. 

By theatre I mean putting on plays and all 
that works toward the success of that enterprise: 
learning to be curious about civilization and its 
failures and accomplishments; learning to read, 
interpret, and cherish works of dramatic litera- 
ture; learning to perform with artistry, insight, 
and compassion; learning to move with grace 
and speak with presence and understanding; 
learning to sing, clown, fence, and dance; learn- 
ing to design, hammer, wire, construct, and sew; 
learning how to get it all organized and ready by 
opening night. Above all I mean the patient 
search for an ideal theatre in which one learns, 
in the words of Constantin Stanislavski, "to love 
the art in one's self and not one's self in art." 

The impulse to theatre originates somewhere 
near what the anthropologist Victor Turner 
called "the generative center of our culture," an 
elusive and sometimes sacred space where, 
through ritual and play, a culture recreates and 
recovers community and purpose. In theatre 
many of the great moments of our civilization — 
fifth-century Athens, thirteenth-century Europe, 
Renaissance England and Spain, seventeenth- 
century France — found perhaps their most char- 
acteristic expression. One is tempted to say that, 
to the extent a culture neglects or trivializes its 
theatre, it is diminished. Moreover, to under- 
stand theatre is to understand something about 
culture. We come to understand theatre best by 
learning to do theatre. 

Doing theatre has much to teach. I suspect 
that an alert pedagogy has always been aware of 
the links between play, performance, and educa- 
tion. I suspect also that the great moments of 
theatre's flowering were nurtured by what went 
on in the schools. Surely that was the case in 
Elizabethan England. In the early pages of his 
excellent book, Elizabethan Acting {Oxford Uni- 
versity Press, 1951), Bertram Joseph makes pre- 
cisely that point. I allow myself some lengthy 

In 1592, William Gager of Christ Church, Ox- 
ford, defended the performance of plays in col- 
lege. We do theatre, he wrote, 

to recreate owre selve, owre House, and the bet- 
ter part of the Universitye, with some learned 

Poeme or other; to practyse owre owne style 

eyther in prose or verse; to be well acquaynted 

with Seneca or Plautus; honestly to embowlden 

owre yuthe; to try their voyces and confirme 

their memoryes; to frame their speeche; to con- 
forme them to convenient action; to trye what 

mettell is in evrye one, and of what dispostion 

they are. 
Joseph, who is concerned to demonstrate the link 
between the art of the Elizabethan actor and the 
training in rhetoric which was a crucial part of 
Renaissance education, quotes extensively from 
Thomas Heyward's Apology for Actors. Heyward 
affirms that, during his residence in Cambridge, 
He had seen "Tragedyes, Comedyes, Historyes, 
Pastorals and Shews, publicly acted," and that 
not only undergraduates but "graduates of good 
place and reputation" had taken part in these 
plays. Such performances were held necessary to 
give "audacity to the bashfull Grammarians" 
and to embolden scholars "against they come to 
bee employed in any publicke exercise." Then 
Heyward goes on to write that rhetoric, as does 
acting in plays, 

not only emboldens a scholler to speake, but 

instructs him to speake well, and with judge- 
ment to observe his commas, colons, & full 
poynts, his parentheses, his breathing spaces, 
and distinctions, to keep a decorum in his coun- 
tenance, neither to frowne when he should smile, 
nor to make unseemely and disguised faces in 
the delivery of his words, not to stare with his 
eies, draw awry his mouth, confound his voice 
in the hollow of his throat, or teare his words 
hastily betwixt his teeth, neither to buffet his 
deske like a madman, nor stand in his place like 
a liveless Image, demurely plodding, & without 
any smooth & formal motion. It instructs him 
to fit his phrases to his action, and his action to 
his phrases, and his pronuntiation to them both. 
And theh Joseph concludes: 
Elizabethan education, with its emphasis on 
rhetorical delivery, taught a large number of 
boys and men from an early age to associate 
public speaking and the reading of the poets, 
with a discipline of voice and gesture: however 
incompetent individuals may have been, all who 
had received this schooling understood the re- 
lationship between acting and literature which 
alone made possible the triumphs of the Eliza- 
bethan dramatists: moreover, the training given 
at Bchool produced a reservoir of recruits — of 
varying degrees of competence, no doubt — for 
the theatrical companies. We have, in addition, 
to thank the schoolmasters and university 
teachers for creating an intelligent audience 
with enthusiasm and with the critical standards 
which mean so much to the development of a 
popular art. 

The Elizabethans believed acting in plays to 
be an important part of the training of an edu- 
cated man. Today, I would argue that education 
in the liberal arts is excellent preparation for the 
highest achievement not only in such professions 
as law, medicine, and science, but in many of the 
artistic professions as well. If we believe in the 
importance of the arts, and if we believe in the 
educational mission of the liberal arts college, 
we must develop our programs in the arts with 
the same commitment and vigor we devote to the 
teaching of the sciences and humanities. We 
should hope that students, talented in the arts 
and interested by the quality of our programs, 
would consider an education in the liberal arts 
an attractive alternative to more specialized 
training. Our programs must be good enough so 
that these students are able, upon graduation, to

compete successfully for entrance into the best 
graduate and professional schools. There are peo- 
ple who like to talk about "dumb actors." But if 
we have dumb actors we will have dumb shows. 
To perform well in the great classic plays, to di- 
rect them, to design for them, requires craft and 
insight bred of deep cultivation. If we allow our 
theatre to grow dumb, we have reason to worry 
about the condition of our civilization. 

"Many people have considered Sewanee to be 
an ideal home for the arts," writes Jim Mulkin 
elsewhere in these pages. And certainly stu- 
dents, teachers, and visiting artists have, at 
times, felt a special exhilaration giving energy to 
their work in this place. Is there, indeed, a spirit 
here, favorable to the arts? Is it possible that 
(with its inspiration) Sewanee can become a 
unique and "generative" center for the arts? I 
think so. But the spirit is elusive and abandons 
those who do not cherish it. 

Jacques Copeau, a great man of the theatre 
and a great teacher, maintained that every im- 
portant rebirth of theatre had been the work of 
amateurs, amateurs such as Moliere and his first 
troop, Goethe at Weimar, Stanislavski at the be- 
ginning of the Moscow Art Theatre. When Co- 
peau writes of a spirit of amateurism, he is not 
talking about inferior work, or even a willing- 
ness to labor without pay. He is talking about 
those who are drawn to theatre by a passionate 
vision of what theatre ought to be, who are ready 
to take risks for that vision, and who refuse to 
equate being an artist with routine professional- 
ism or with having a career. "One would wish, 
for the artist, however great he is, that he never 
cease, throughout his career, being an amateur, 
if we give to that word its full sense: one who 
loves. One who gives himself to art neither 
through ambition, nor vanity, nor cupidity, but 
only through love, and who, subordinating his 
whole person to that pure passion, takes vows of 
humility, patience, and courage." It would be 
wonderful if such a spirit could imbue our work 
in theatre at Sewanee, and if those who leave 
here could take that spirit with them when they 

Mr. Landon, an associate professor of French and 
theatre, came to Sewanee in 1971 to teach French 
initially and obtained a joint appointment in 
French and theatre in 1976. He has studied thea- 
tre in New York City, principally under Kathar- 
ine Sergava, and in Paris with Jacques Lecoq. 
Though a key ingredient in theatre on the Moun- 
tain for several years, Mr. Landon has performed, 
often with glowing reviews, with the Alabama 
Shakespeare Festival, the Heritage Repertoire 
Theatre at the University of Virginia, the Cum- 
berland County Playhouse in Tennessee, and 
other companies. 

The Purple Masque was in its golden age when 
Brinley Rhys, Ginny Collins, Harold Shaffer, 
and Stan Laehman starred in the 1949 produc- 
tion of Faustus. 

Curriculum in Theatre 

by Peter T. Smith 

The curriculum in theatre arts at Sewanee is de- 
signed to offer the student a broad background in 
the areas of acting, directing, design, history, lit- 
erature, and criticism. The department expects 
its majors to gain knowledge and experience in 
these disciplines by active participation in the 
production program of Purple Masque, the Uni- 
versity theatre company. 

Of course, all courses in the department are 
open to non-majors and the creative Btudio 
courses such as acting and design benefit from 
students with a wide range of interests and lev- 
els of experience. 

Purple Masque productions are open to all 
members of the community, and students often 
find themselves acting with faculty and staff 
members and older members of the community. 
The experience of working side by side with sea- 
soned theatre professionals is perhaps the best 
teaching tool of the department. Guest artists 
are utilized to blend their specific talents with 
those of the students. Recently, Bill Iannone, a 
professional singer and actor from New York, ap- 
peared with eight students in the musical 
Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in 

The department recognizes that the vast ma- 
jority of theatre graduates will pursue other ca- 
reers. In fact, seventy -five percent of current 
theatre majors are double majors in fields such 
as English or Political Science. Many will go on 
to law school or other professional opportunities. 

For the student who is intent on a professional 
career in theatre, the department does offer a 
more sophisticated course of study. Departmen- 
tal honors are granted to that student who com- 
pletes forty-two hours in theatre arts with 
special concentration in one of the areas of act- 
ing, directing, playwriting, design, history, or lit- 
erature and criticism. Included in the program is 
a major research project or recital for public 

Flexibility is one of the major ingredients in 
the theatre program at Sewanee. The depart- 
ment and Purple Masque look carefully at the 
students before scheduling courses and produc- 
tions. It is our belief that the program should fit 
the students and that the students come first. 
The curriculum is designed so that students are 
challenged to the maximum level of their ability. 

Peter T. Smith is chairman of the department of 
theatre and speech at Sewanee. Educated at the 
College of the Holy Cross and Case Western Re- 
serve, he subsequently taught at Furman Univer- 
sity and Greenville (South Carolina) Technical 
College, wrote critical reviews, and served as ar- 
tistic director for the Warehouse Theatre in 
Greenville. He was also theatre consultant for the 
South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts.

Theatre of Imagination 

by Jim Mulkin, C'78 

My memories of Purple Masque, the plays we 
produced, and the people who acted in them are 
sharp and fresh, but when I try to draw any con- 
clusions from them or see them in a general way, 
they all melt into vague recollections of staying 
up all night trying to do classwork at the end of 
the semester because that was the only time I 

I do know that my love for the theatre and its 
magic was nurtured in Sewanee. There was no 
major then; instead there was Purple Masque. 

I always wondered where that strange and 
mellifluous name came from. Even more, I won- 
dered what Purple Masque was exactly. It 
seemed to be a good-natured, serendipitous com- 
bination of students who liked acting, directing, 
or designing. 

The plays that were done in Guerry Hall were 
usually ambitious in their scope, and because the 
College's laissez-faire attitude encouraged exper- 
imentation, a wide variety of plays and enter- 
tainments were done all over campus during my 
four years there. 

Theatre at Sewanee was hard work and good 
times and full of freewheeling imagination be- 
cause we were unsophisticated, had no guide- 
lines, no requirements, and no boundaries. If you 
wanted to put on a play, you put on a play. If you 
wanted to know more about theatre, you read 

plays and took classes in dramatic literature. 

I was lucky to get several professors who were 
very helpful and supportive of what was then 
considered an extracurricular activity, and they 
helped me acquire a wide-ranging, easy familiar- 
ity with the great plays. This training in liberal 
arts, coupled with the freedom to try anything, 
gave me an excitement and joy in working in the 
theatre that will never leave me. 

Pm glad the general attitude toward the thea- 
tre in Sewanee is brightening. Many people have 
considered Sewanee to be an ideal home for the 
arts, not only because of its great natural beauty 
and its peaceful seclusion, but because Sewanee 
has for so long nurtured a love of literature' and 
a gracefulness of thought. The intellectual cli- 
mate would seem to be ideal as well. 

There is so much promise at Sewanee of a re- 
birth of the arts and letters. I have always 
looked to Sewanee as a place where many sorts 
of dreams could take tangible form. Why not this

Sewanee dramatics, the record of which began in 
1875, has for 110 years waxed and waned accord- 
ing to talent which appeared more or less sponta- 
neously among students and residents. There 
was always much interest in oratory, but not un- 
til 1917 was there a department of public speak- 
ing, which soon included a course in "dramatic 
expression." There was an instructor in drama in 
1953, but then drama disappeared from the cur- 
riculum until 1969-70 when a course in theatre 
practice was offered in a drama department. The 
theatramajor arrived in the curriculum in 1982. 

More often than not, through the years, dra- 
matic efforts came from individual enthusiasm, a 
word much used in the 1907 Semi-Centennial 
Cap and Gown's History of Sewanee Dramatics. 
Some one person or small group — whether stu- 
dent, resident, chaplain, faculty member, or in 
the 1890s the Vice-Chancellor — took the lead in 
organizing, producing, and directing drama 
which ran the gamut from farce to consecutive 
yearly productions of Greek classics. 

Students and faculty daughters formed the 
cast of the "earliest histrionic event" in 1875; 
they presented a series of tableaux or living pic- 
tures of Pocahontas, Bluebeard, Mary Queen of 
Scots, and other historic or mythical persons. By 
1882 Forensic Hall, built in 1874 especially for 
oratorical contests, required a new stage on 
which the first production was a farce, lei On 
Parle Francais. The Sewanee Dramatic Club in 



1886 presented The Honeymoon, in which Gus 
Boucher appeared, described as the creator of Se- 
wanee enthusiasm for theatricals. Thirteen 
years a student from his entrance into the Sewa- 
nee Grammar School in 1878 until his gradua- 
tion as a master of arts in 1891, he "could paint 
the scenery, make the costumes, make up the 
players, develop a good actor from a poor one and 
improvise lines on the spur of the moment." 
There was even in the 1880s a Sewanee Opera 
Company which played in Tullahoma and Shel- 

By the 1890s the Sewanee Dramatic Club was 
presenting Shakespeare and a remarkable series 
of four Greek dramas, beginning with The Frogs 
of Aristophanes in 1892, followed by Alkestis, 
Antigone and Oedipus Rex. Antigone played in 
the Nashville opera house. Vice-Chancellor Ben- 
jamin Lawton Wiggins, in his capacity of profes- 
sor of ancient languages, directed the 
Performances with zeal, scholarship, and apti- 
tude for practical detail, according to the Cap 

The Punch and Judy cast from the 1909 production of London Assurance. 

After Thompson Union burned in 1950 a wing 
of Elliott Hall (now the Women's Center) became 
a theatre-in-the-round until a war-surplus quon- 
set hut ironically nicknamed Swayback Hall was 
built near the gymnasium. It served about ten 
years for Purple Masque's three presentations 
each year, which included first-rate contempo- 
rary and traditional plays, ranging from The 
Crucible and The Glass Menagerie to Antigone. 
The superb director was Brinley Rhys of the 
English department. A star actress was a stu- 
dent wife, Ginny Moise Collins, who soon re- 
turned to Sewanee as wife of the chaplain the 
Rev. David Collins. She became a producer and 
director, including a fine performance of Murder 
in the Cathedral in the "old gym" with Chaplain 
Collins as Thomas a Becket. Mrs. Collins was a 
moving spirit in the creation of a Community 
Theatre of the 1960s. 

The Guerry Hall theatre was completed in 
1961 and opened with a production of Othello. 
Brinley Rhys continued direction of the Purple 
Masque through 1965, while teaching English. 
Since that time a faculty member has been ap- 
pointed with primary responsibility in dramat- 
ics. The longest tenure in that post was that of 
Robert Wilcox, from 1970 to 1979. Among the 
memorable performances of the Wilcox era were 
the rock opera Tommy, Hedda Gabler, Henry IV, 
and the Beggars' Opera. Wilcox presented local 
authors: Professor Eugene Kayden's translations 
of one-act plays by Pushkin, Peter Taylor's A 
Stand in the Mountains, set in the Monteagle As- 
sembly, and Edith Whitesell's Barber of Ver- 
sailles. Sewanee Arts, a student-operated drama 
and art touring company, founded in 1971 by 
Christopher Paine, used as its base the Outside 
Inn, touring over icy roads one Christmas holi- 
day, and presenting student-directed perform- 
ances, a regular WUTS radio program, and fine 
arts shows. It continues in various guises to this 

All Saints' Chapel has been the site of theatri- 
cal productions through the years, from the 
Christmas plays of Bairnwick School to a 1970 
production of Murder in the Cathedral, Purple 
Masque's 1977 production of W.H. Auden's 
Christmas oratorio, For the Time Being, and the 
1978 Menotti opera performance of Amahl and 
the Night Visitors. The cloister between Convo- 
cation and Walsh Halls served as backdrop for a 
stunning performance of Everyman on Maundy 
Thursday in 1949. Grosvenor Auditorium was 
used for dramatic performances in St. Luke's 
Hall when it had a stage. St. Luke's Chapel was 

the scene of The Three Maries, one of a series of 
music and dramatic events of the Mediaeval Col- 
loquium. Cravens Hall had remarkable produc- 
tions at Sewanee Academy under the direction of 
Frank Thomas, and now the St. Andrew's-Sewa- 
nee Players at St. Andrew*s-Sewanee School con- 
tinue to present classical and contemporary 
drama and win regional awards for excellence. 

Nothing, however, has exceeded in size of cast 
Charlotte Gailor's Centennial Pageant in 1958 
on Hardee Field with hundreds of students , com- 
munity members, and two bishops. Bishop Frank 
A. Juhan played Leonidas Polk and Bishop T. N. 
Barth on horseback played his predecessor 
James H. Otey. 

With the establishment of theatre courses for 
credit and a major, and full- and part-time fac- 
ulty members, let us hope that there will still be 
a place for the talent and enthusiasm which in- 
novative individuals have brought to Sewanee's 
dramatic scene. 

and Gown. When the Greek plays were followed 
by "A Box of Monkeys," the Cap and Gown re- 
marked: "This descent from Divinities to Pri- 
mates seemed to have congealed the dramatic 
enthusiam for a while." A resident, Mrs. S. K. 
Johnson, was credited with the energy and abil- 
ity to which Sewanee owed most of its "Thespian 
revelries" from 1887 to 1901. 

Ben Greet and his English players came in 
1906 to present As You Like It. An open air thea- 
tre was constructed in Louisiana Circle in 1908 
for entertainments at Commencement and in 
summer. A new dramatic group, Punch and 
Judy, was organized in 1907 and survived until 
the 1920s. Chaplain Arthur R. Gray was its "life 
president" and light drama was its bill of fare. A 
summer group, the Sewanee Players, performed 
in nearby communities in 1914. A group called 
the Union Players presented classical drama 
after a theatre was made on the second floor of 
Thompson Union, formerly the medical school 
and now, after reconstruction, the Development 
Office. Seminarians composed the Shakespeare 
Players in the 1930s. 

Punch and Judy was succeeded in 1926 by 
"Purple Mask," which soon adopted its current 
name of Purple Masque. The first directress was 
a faculty wife, Mrs. G. J. Madlinger. A Sewanee 
chapter of the honor society Alpha Psi Omega 
was organized in 1929. Well-remembered is a 
Purple Masque version of The Mikado with local 
lyrics which was presented in 1941. Take-offs of 
the faculty {especially Vice-Chancellor Guerry as 
the Mikado) were all too recognizable for the 
comfort of some of those portrayed.

When any of us think back to our 
college years, the memories are 
punctuated with periods of anguish, 
frustration, and fear. Some inci- 
dents may seem almost humorous 
now, others a bit embarrassing, 
while a few have left deeper scars. 
Ah, those halcyon days were not al- 
ways so peaceful. We were expected 
to mature faster than we were able. 

So, during those college days 
(let's say before 1980), we sought 
solace and advice from one or two 
professors, if we were fortunate 
enough to encounter any who 
sensed our plight and were sympa- 
thetic, and, yes, there were a few 
thoughtful souls about. Great com- 
pany when you could find them 

There were, of course, our room- 
mates and dates to consult, but 
their well-intentioned advice was 
clearly hit or miss. 

For a number of years, leaders of 
the University, especially the deans 
and chaplains, have recognized that 
students often need counseling that 
is both sustained and professional. 
Thus, in 1980, after a time of dis- 
cussion and preparation, the Uni- 
versity Counseling Service was 

Richard Chapman was and re- 
mains the first full-time director/ 
counselor. Three years after his ap- 
pointment, Davelyn Monti became 
the second full-time counselor. The 
staff also calls upon* a psychiatrist 
from Chattanooga and occasionally 
specialists in substance abuse for 
evaluation and counseling. 

The rapid growth of the counsel- 
ing service is not a sign that Sewa- 
nee is swelling with psychological 
misfits. As we have already sug- 
gested, the counselors are in many 
ways meeting a need that has ex- - 
isted for a long time. 

"In short," Chapman said, "the 
move to create a University Coun- 
seling Service was intended to bring 
Sewanee's counseling resources to a 
level provided at other excellent 
private colleges." 

For the student who is over- 
whelmed by academic pressures, 
confused by the diversity of values 
and lifestyles on the campus, and 
disoriented because of the sudden 
loss of family, friends, and familiar 
surroundings, counseling on an in- 
dividual basis is the most direct 
remedy for bringing the world back 
into perspective. 

Faculty members and administra- 
tors may be the first persons to rec- 
ognize telltale signs of anxiety, 
tension, social withdrawal, or 
depression in a student and occa- 
sionally call upon the counseling 
service to lend a hand. Frequently 
students seek assistance on their 
own initiative. 

"It's been my experience that col- 
lege students are more intent on 
personal development than the av- 
erage person," Chapman said. "And 
they are generally more receptive to 
this type of short-term counseling." 

The counselors utilize a wide 
range of counseling approaches and 
techniques, but they are all directed 
to the same purpose. 

Counseling in Many Forms 

For Richard Chapman, University counselor, personal contact with stu- 
dents is the essence of the University Counseling Service.

"Our central aim is to assist the 
student to become a more confident, 
self-reliant, and effective person," 
he explained. "What we are doing is 
based on the belief that each person 
must assume responsibility for his 
or her own life and that personal 
decisions must be realistic and con- 

While individual counseling ab- 
sorbs most of the staff members' 
time, much effort is concentrated on 
preventive and developmental ac- 
tivities. Those developmental activ- 
ities may be the most exciting part 
of the new program. 

This semester Mr. Chapman and 
Mrs. Monti are conducting training 
programs in assertiveness training, 
personal stress management, inter- 
personal communications, and lead- 
ership skills. They have been 

working with others to assist stu- 
dent leaders of BACCHUS, which 
Chapman says is "a genuine and 
very encouraging effort by some 
student leaders to deal with the 
problems posed by alcohol abuse at 

As a result of a suggestion from 
the Student Life Cabinet, the coun- 
seling service has recently helped to 
design a workshop aimed particu- 
larly at the social and academic 
concerns of sophomores. Staff mem- 
bers have also consulted with lead- 
ers of the Interfraternity Council 
and the Intersorority Council to 
help the fraternities and sororities 
develop programs and activities for 
their members. 

From the beginning of the Coun- 
seling Service, Mr. Chapman has 
acted as a consultant to the deans 

in creating a strong orientation pro- 
gram for entering students. An ex- 
tension of orientation has been a 
series of workshops on developing 
study skills, sponsored by the Order 
of Gownsmen and led by associate 
dean Douglas Paschall, which has 
helped to clarify academic expecta- 
tions and reduce academic stress for 

Each spring the counselors lead 
activities at a retreat designed to 
provide a good opportunity for new 
proctors and the deans of students 
to get acquainted and become famil- 
iar with their tasks. Chapman 
would like to stimulate interest in 
yearly gathering of faculty repre- 
sentatives, administrators, and sti

In the area of athletics, Chapman 
has met with varsity basketball and 
tennis teams, for example, and has 
used such techniques as guided im- 
agery, stress reduction, and focus- 
ing exercises to improve

In serving various University de- 
partments, he has encouraged the 
use of survey research to assess stu- 
dent attitudes and interests. The in 
formation collected can be an 
invaluable prerequisite to the de- 
sign of effective student programs 
and activities. 

The addition of Davelyn Monti to 
the staff was one of need, but she 
has also provided special gifts. Mrs. 
Monti spends even more time than 
Mr. Chapman in individual counsel- 
ing. Most of the rest of her time is 
spent in group counseling and skill 
training programs. 

She has taken a special interest 
in assisting with the concerns of 
families in the School of Theology. 
She does individual counseling with 
seminarians as well as with their 
spouses and children. Her work 
with the College women has led to 
her interest in assisting the Wom- 
en's Interdorm Council. Mrs. Monti 
has led a retreat to help the WTDC 
clarify goals, and she is continuing 
to serve as a consultant to the orga- 
nization. Currently she is also mak- 
ing a series of talks at the 
dormitories entitled "Sexuality: 
Facts and Values." 

"All of these activities are an ef- 
fort to help make Sewanee more 
conducive to personal development 
and academic success," Chapman 

"Davelyn and I see our roles a 
one element of a network of support 
and assistance for students. This 
network includes faculty advisors, 
the deans and chaplains, and other 
professionals, along with peer coun- 
selors, such as the proctors and as- 
sistant proctors. If we can help 
unite these groups into an harmoni- 
ous, efficient, and helpful network, 
we will have achieved our goal." 

The Liberal Arts: 

Finding the "Great 
Scheme of Things" 

by Joe B. dimming, Jr., C'47 

Every time I prepare my get-ac- 
quainted spiel for a new class, I 
have to struggle against revealing 
to my students what I consider the 
Big Secret — my answer to why they 
should learn. 

They don't need to hear it at this 
point in their lives. They have 
enough to do keeping up with what 
they should learn and how they 
should go about learning it. The 
why can wait. 

That is not to say that I think col- 
lege students lack acuity or percep- 
tion. I have found many of them 
have matured beyond the old idea 
that college is where you go to get 
good grades to get a job so you can 
afford the car, house, spouse, and 
way of living fantasized during the 
high-school years. I have been im- 
pressed to find that most of those I 
talk to seem to think in terms of ca- 
reers instead of jobs. And they go 
about picking their careers 

And yet the main point of a lib- 
eral-arts education — the Big Se- 
cret — is not career guidance. It has 
to do with providing some future ac- 
cess to that invisible world on the 
other side of the looking glass: the 
world of elegant ideas, sophisticated 
observation, unexpected judgments. 
The skills that the liberal arts teach 
should inform life's action with 
clear-minded analysis and enrich 
its impulses with creative 

Like most college catalogues, ours 
articulates the higher purposes of a 
liberal-arts education quite well. 
We seek to provide an "environ- 
ment wherein each student may at- 
tain a disciplined and open mind, a 
capacity for self-development, and 
the knowledge and skills essential 
for living in a free society." 
"Capacity for self-development." 
The phrase reminds me of my high- 
school Latin teacher. When we chal- 
lenged him to explain the point of 
studying a dead language, he would 
say, "It will help you learn how to 
learn." We, of course, felt we had 
been handed another of the adult 
world's incomprehensible, tailchas- 
ing maxims. 

And yet, even leaving aside the 
value of Latin as a basis for under- 
standing the structure of language, 
it was a good answer. To learn how 
to learn. Looking back, I can see it 
would be a good start to explaining 
"Why college?" 

I look back across a quarter of a 
century as a journalist. The process 
of covering news is an experience in 
learning. Each new or unfamiliar 
story to be covered demands first a 
quick and accurate locating of the 
subject in the Great Scheme of 
Things, then an equally efficient ex- 
ploring to discover its significance 
and interest. 

That means a reporter must keep 
in mind a road map representing 
the "great scheme." College-ac- 
quired knowledge may do little 
more than provide the coordinates 
and North arrow of such a map. But 
that is a vital start. Each new sub- 
ject explored in life after college is 
added as a landmark to the map. 
The picture becomes clearer. The 
gradual filling in of the map, the 
slow clarifying of connections and 
relationships — the process of learn- 
ing and growing — is so deeply satis- 
fying it is difficult to describe. 

When I think of the broader 
meaning of that process in liberal 
arts, I find it needs to be expressed 
by a fanciful myth. Somewhere be- 
tween the ages of 30 and 50, it can 
happen that one enters what I will 
call the cave. 

In the middle of the journey of our 
life 1 came to myself in a dark wood 
where the straight way was lost. 

O.K.— for Dante it was a dark 
wood. I still prefer the cave, entered 
with little more than the torch of 
smoky pine that is knowledge ac- 
quired in college. As the years go 
by, the torch is held out to flicker on 
the walls, to explore the crevices, to 
reveal the unexpected passages, the 
hidden rooms, the connecting 

The labyrinth becomes familiar; 
its pattern begins to present a cer- 
tain logic and beauty. Then it can 
happen that a light begins to fill the 
cave, and it is ho longer a cave but 
a landscape that opens before the 

Arriving at that point is not the 
beginning of wisdom nor does it 
promise worldly success. Yet with it 
comes understanding and confi- 
dence that can lead to the fulfill- 
ment of many long-held wishes. 
One can become cynical or wickedly 
witty. Or one can choose to believe.

Masters of Walsh Hall 

SedleyL. "Fuzzy" Ware 

by Joe B. Cumming, Jr., C'47 \ 

These days, in my battle to teach 
college students, I cannot forget Se- 
wanee forty years ago when I sat 
where they sit, daring my teach- 
ers — Abbo, "Fuzzy" Ware, Arthur 
Dugan, and the rest — to change me, 
to teach me, to convince me that 
there was a larger world for me to 
bear than the one I brought into 
class, invisible on my shoulders. 

The trip back through time comes 
on me unexpectedly here in Carroll- 
ton, Georgia. I stand before my 
class in room 312 of the Humanities 
Building at West Georgia College 
and, in a subliminal blink of flash- 
back, there I am in Walsh Hall, sit- 
ting at the dark-painted pine plank 
that served as desk for a row of stu- 
dents in the 1940s. And, even as I 
strike my pedagogic posture in 
1984, 1 feel the presence of those 
teachers, now dead or very old, who 
faced me in immortal combat; I 
think of them these days and have 
new insight into their struggle with 
our ignorance. 

Oh, my teachers, how could you 
know that you won the battle? You 
fanned alive a flame in me that has 
not gone out but still burns, a con- 
suming, greedy fire. How could you 
know you would win when all I 
showed you in those days were 
sleepy eyes, sloppy papers, and 
worse verse? 

I am learning that a teacher can 
never know, in the short haul, what 
good — or harm — he has done to his 
students. So let it be. 

But I would like to publish here a 
cry of thanks into the veil to those 
few who held the battle line and en- 
larged my life. 

— You, "Fuzzy" Ware, outrageous 
campus character of towering bom- 
bast, scruffy beard, and battered 
briefcase laden with History who 
bullied students in class, hurling 
chalk and insults, scribbling Jovian 
denouncements on the margins of 
papers we turned in. (I uncovered 
one in a musty pile just last month. 
"Dates! Dates! Give me Dates!" the 
red ink thundered, "—not a shop- 
ping list of names!") 

Even at the time we spotted the 
fraud in your anger, the joke hidden 
in your rampaging impatience. Yet 
your pyrotechnics served to impress 

on me for life the mythical signifi- 
cance of the Gothic arch in the evo- 
lution of Western civilization. I 
, have worked the Gothic arch— not 
without some straining — into my 
Introduction to Mass 
Communication . 

— And you, Arthur Dugan, who 
first startled me with the ecstasy of 
clear thinking, who chopped the air 
into neat links, dividing history 
into wonderful sausages, laughing 
at the ironies even as you shared 
the delight with us. I will never 
quite recover from the day you 
looked around the class and saw 
more blood-heavy eyelids clicking 
shut than irises widening and pup- 
ils dilated. You snapped shut the 
book you were holding, gathered up 
the other books you had brought to 
read from (with their paper mark- 
ers sticking out from between the 
pages), and stalked out of the room. 
I hope to do that someday, when 

— And you, Abbo, the Abbott of 
Martin, the raiser of consciousness 
long before the term was appropri- 
ated to serve a special interest, you 
of masterful dramatic techniques — 
the disdainful snorts and sudden 
eye-openings in mock surprise, the 
glint-eyed merriment, the signifi- 
cant final phrase delivered with in- 
sinuating and elegant English 
accent — you left me with an abiding 
love of Wordsworth and his "dark 
inscrutable workmanship." And a 
precariously raised consciousness. 

You three — all dead — are the 
ones I think about these days, you 
with your masterfully performed 

While I am too much of a ham not 
to use dramatics, I am working on a 
classroom technique that has a dif- 
ferent emphasis. I'm devising ways 
to induce in students in class the 
restless, aggressive, intellectual at- 
titude of reporters at a news confer- 
ence. I want to put pressure on 
them to feel responsible for produc- 
ing out of a lecture — and the ques- 
tions they may ask — a cogent, 
readable, newslike story complete 
with the best quotations from the 

I don't know if it will work. But I 
hope some day a student will feel 
about my effort as I feel towards my 
Masters of Walsh Hall after nearly 
half a century. 


Visitors Add 

Novelist Alan S. Cheuse, a Brown 
Foundation fellow and visiting pro- 
fessor of English and comparative 
literature, is one of seven new fac- 
ulty members teaching this semes- 
ter in the College.

Groom New Associate Dean 

Frederick H. Croom, chairman of 
the mathematics department, has 
been named associate dean of the 
College of Arts and Sciences. 

His term will begin July 1 when 
Douglas Paschall returns to full- 
time teaching in the English 

In making the appointment, Dean 
W. Brown Patterson said, "His ex- 
perience as a teacher, scholar, de- 
partment chairman, and director of 
the summer school has prepared 
him well for this important and

An Attractive Challenge 

by Katharine Jones, C'84 

Most college students, no matter 
how dedicated, would rather not 
spend their summers going to 
classes. But for four years, the In- 
ternational Studies in London, of- 
fered by the Southern College and 
University Union, has drawn Sewa- 
nee students from relatively lazy 
vacations to classes with such titles 
as "The Politics of Global Interde- 
pendence" and "The EEC and the 
World Economy." 

The London program always em- 
phasizes the social, economic, busi- 
ness, and political facets of 
contemporary international prob- 
lems. This year, from July 8 to Au- 
gust 15, it will concentrate on "The 
Role of the European Community in 
the International Order." 

Besides taking courses, students 
go on field trips to the Commodities 
Market, the World Money Center of 
the National Westminster Bank, 
Lloyds of London, and other centers 
of commerce. Guest lecturers come 
from multinational corporations, 
government offices, and academia. 

Derek Waller, director of Interna- 
tional Studies in London, visited Se- 
wanee this winter with a guest 
speaker. He said the main advan- 
tage of the program is not so much 
the class work but the chance to 
live in London. 

"London offers an educational ex- 
perience students cannot get any- 
where else," he said. 

As a result, participants come 
from a variety of academic majors, 
not simply political science and eco- 
nomics. They and the faculty stay 
in apartments of the London School 

Frederick H. Croom 

of Economics on the edge of the 
Bloomsbury neighborhood within 
walking distance of the London Mu- 
seum, Regents Park, and other at- 

Each year there is a student as- 
sistant to the director chosen from 
the previous year's class who helps 
students get the full benefit of the 
experience. This year the student 
assistant is Sewanee's Ernest 
Brown, a senior economics/natural 
resources major from San Antonio, 

The London program is one of 
several opportunities for study 
abroad and is still second to the 
more famous British Studies at Ox- 
ford. But the London adventure is 
growing in popularity. The number 
of Sewanee participants is expected 
to double from seven in 1983 to 
fourteen this summer. Barclay 
Ward, associate professor of politi- 
cal science, is the faculty represent- 
ative in Sewanee, 

Faculty Notes 


Richard O'Connor, assistant profes- 
sor of anthropology, is the author of 
a recent book entitled A Theory of 
Indigenous Southeast Asian Urban- 
ism (1983), published by the Insti- 
tute of Southeast Asian Studies in 
Singapore. He begins the book with 
the observation: "Somewhere be- 
tween the cosmological past and the 
modern present, scholars have lost 
the Southeast Asian city and put 
Chicago in its place." In his analy- 
sis, he follows a historical approach, 
showing the impact of Indian, 
Chinese, and Western urban cul- 
tures upon the millennia-old South- 
east Asian cities. He also deals with 
what he calls "the symbolic surface 
of life" in pointing the way towards 
an understanding of these cities on 
their own terms. 

Explorations in Whitehead's Philos- 
ophy, edited by Lewis S. Ford and 
George L. Kline (New York: For- 
dham University Press, 1983), con- 
tains an essay on "The Ultimacy of 
Creativity" by William J. Garland, 
chairman of Sewanee's department 
of philosophy. "The essays collected 
in this volume are representative of 
the best work that has been done on 
Whitehead's philosophy in recent 
years," according to one of the edi- 
tors. Garland's essay, which origi- 
nally appeared in The Southern 
Journal of Philosophy in 1969-70, 
was extensively revised and en- 
larged for this collection. In the es- 
say, Garland argues that Alfred 
North Whitehead's principle of 
creativity can provide ultimate ex- 
planations for both the "ongoing- 
ness of time and the prehensive 
relatedness of the world." Garland 
also has an article on "Whitehead's 
Theory of Causal Objectification" in 
a recent issue of Process Studies 
(Fall, 1982), the journal devoted to 
the study of Whitehead and other 
significant process philosophers. He 
is now at work on a book dealing 
with Whitehead's ethical theory. 

Harold Goldberg, associate profes- 
sor of history, continues to be a con- 
tributor to the Modern Encyclopedia 
of Russian and Soviet History. He 
has written seven articles about the 
Russian anarchists which were 
either published during 1983 Or will 
be included in forthcoming volumes. 
Last summer he participated in a 
National Endowment for the Hu- 
manities Seminar entitled "Marx- 
ism and Communism in China" at 
the University of Wisconsin in Mad- 
ison. Mr. Goldberg will also lecture 
at the 1984 Sewanee Summer 

Arthur J. Knoll, professor of his- 
tory, was in Germany for the fall se- 
mester as an Alexander von 
Humboldt fellow at the University 
of Heidelberg. Germany's most 
prestigious fellowship, the von 
Humboldt grant was awarded last 
year to only 145 persons throughout 
the world. 

Professor Knoll wrote a paper en- 
titled "Decision-Making for the Ger- 

man Colonies: the Colonial Office 
and the Pressure Groups," which he 
read at the African Studies Associa- 
tion meeting in Boston in 

Amidst a full campus schedule, 
Robert G. Delcamp, University or- 
ganist and choirmaster, accepted in- 
vitations to give five organ recitals 
during the months of February and 

First he conducted the choir of 
the-Cathedral of the Incarnation in 
Garden City, Long Island, in a Cho- 
ral Evensong and afterward gave 
an organ recital for the Garden City 
chapter of the American Guild of 
Organists. He gave another recital 
to the Tuscaloosa chapter of the 
AGO on the campus of the Univer- 
sity of Alabama. He also performed 
at the Fourth Presbyterian Church 
in Chicago, the First Baptist 
Church in Chattanooga, and the 
Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 
Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

W. Brown Patterson, dean of the 
college and professor of history, has 
recently had an article published 
entitled "Defining the Educated 
Person: From Harvard to Harvard" 
in Soundings: An Interdisciplinary 
Journal (Summer, 1983). The arti- 
cle puts in historical perspective the 
current debate over the definition of 
the educated person. It traces the 
concept of the educated person 
through the auricular changes in 
American higher education from 
the founding of Harvard College to 
the core curriculum at Harvard in 
1978. It also seeks to restate the at- 
tributes of the educated person in a 
way that is relevant to the present 
day. His conclusion is that a rigor- 
ous and ambitious educational pro- 
gram is needed "to produce men and 
women able to analyze and contrib- 
ute to the solution of problems of a 
daunting complexity ... and to do so 
in full awareness of the moral and 
religious wellsprings of our 

Assistant professor Reinhard Za- 
chau's book, Stefan Heym (Munich: 
Beck & Autorenedition, 1982), deals 
with an East German who, through 
his writings and political activities, 
has participated in some of the most 
important events in recent German 
history. A leader in the anti-Fascist 
resistance, Heym served the Ameri- 
can forces after D-Day. As a resi- 
dent of East Germany, he has both 
defended and criticized the regime 
there. Zachau's book, written in 
German for a general audience, is 
based upon personal interviews 
with Heym; it is also an analysis of 
his writings. In the course of his 
work on the German writer, Zachau 
helped to arrange a lecture tour in 
the United States for him in 1978, 
during which the visitor apparently 
fascinated his audiences with his 
fresh and iconoclastic views. 

"Variety" is the word for the recent 
writing and lecturing of Gerald L. 

Smith, associate professor of reli- 
gion. He is currently working on a 
textbook, Southern Religion; A 
Sourcebook, which he is co-editing 
with Professor Samuel S. Hall of 
the University of Florida. He will 
continue the editing while on sab- 
batical leave next fall. In addition, 
several of his book reviews and arti- 
cles have been published recently. 

Professor Smith has lectured for a 
student-faculty dialogue program 
on the Ku Klux Klan; on yoga and 
meditation at St. William's Catholic 
Church in Shelbyville; on Hinduism 
and Buddhism at Shelbyville Chris- 
tian Church; and he delivered six 
lectures on Southern Religion at 
Otey Memorial Church in Sewanee. 
He first delivered these Southern 
Religion lectures at the Church of 
the Nativity in Huntsville, Ala- 
bama, and they were well received. 
This spring he will give a similar 
series at Grace Church in 

An article by Mr. Smith on ethics 
and hunter education was recently 
accepted by Tennessee Wildlife 
magazine. Along with Robert Ben- 
son, associate professor of English, 
and Beeler Brush, alumni director, 
he has helped organize a Sewanee 
chapter of Ducks Unlimited, the 
first chapter to be established on a 
college campus. He and Mr. Benson 
also teach hunter safety to area 
children and adults. 

A. Scott Bates 

Four poems by Scott Bates, profes- 
sor of French, have been included in 
the recent publication of Light Year 
'84. Mr. Bates has also been in- 
formed that six of hiB poems will be 
included in next year's volume, 
Light Year '85. 

A note in the December iBsue of 
the News reported Professor Bates's 
latest book as Lopo's Fables rather 
than Lupo's Fables. The book, 
which contains many of Bates's 
poems from Sewanee Purple issues 
of the 1950s, may still be ordered 
from the St. Luke's Bookstore in Se- 
wanee for $6, plus $2 for postage 
and handling.

Prospects for Spring Are 
Looking Bright 


The 1984 Sewanee baseball team, 
under new Head Coach Dewey War- 
ren, will depend largely on fresh- 
men in key positions. 

"We have a lot of very versatile 
athletes," said Coach Warren. "A 
lot of those guys can play several 

The Tigers will not be without ex- 
perience, however. Three seniors 
will provide leadership as will all- 
conference second baseman Hank 
Hopping, C'85. John Laurenzo, 
C'86, a transfer from the University 
of Mississippi, is also expected to 
boost the squad. 

"We lack a real pitcher," said 
Warren. "However, Mark Kent, 
Bobby Morales, and Joe Royal, 
should fill the gaps for us." 

The weakness in pitching is 
countered by what Coach Warren 
calls "good bats." 

"We have a lot of people who can 
hit the ball a long way," he said. 

The conference championships 
will be held May 1-3. 

Men's Tennis 

The tennis team's great strength is 
its depth. 

Scott Clark, C'84, takes over the 
top position, but four others are 
close. They are Sam Woodall, C'86, 
Jonathan Woolfson, C'85, Mike Sal- 
isbury, C'86, and Carl Brutkiewicz, 

In addition to 100-percent effort, 
Coach Norm Kalkhoff is emphasiz- 
ing sportsmanship. 

"Regardless of whether we win or 
lose, we want good sportsmanship 
and attitudes on the court," he said. 

"I think we're in better shape 
than a lot of our competition," he 
said, "and this will help us down 
the stretch." 

The conference championships 
will be held May 6-8 at Centre. 

Women's Tennis 

Jeannie Fissinger takes over the 
reins of the tennis team thiB year 
and inherits some good competitors. 

"Our top five will be very compet- 
itive," she said, "both among them- 
selves and against the opposition." 

The number one player on the 
team is Kelly Creveling, C'84, while 
the number two and three spots are 
filled by Adrienne Briggs, C'86, and 
Randy Poitevert, C'86. 

Coach Fissinger has been sur- 
prised by the rapid improvement of 
the squad, and she is looking for- 
ward to the conference champion- 
ships in late April.

C'86, of Hendersonville, Tennessee, 
returns with some strength in the 
throwing events. Last year he fin- 
ished fourth in the conference shot

discus. Charles Yeomans, C'84, 
coming off an impressive cross- 
country season, placed in both the 
1500- and 5000-meter cuns in last 
year's conference championships. 

On the women's squad, Teresa 
Owen, C'84, of Reistertown, Mary- 
land, should once again lead the 
team in the distance events. Last 
year she broke school records for 
the 1500-, 3000-, and 5000-meter 
runs all on the same day. 

The men's conference champion- 
ships will be held May 2-4. The 
Women's Intercollegiate Athletic 
Conference meet will be held April 


For the past three years, Sewanee 
has won the CAC championship in 
golf, and the good news this year is 
that all of last season's top links- 
men have returned. 

Four of the top five — Bill Hodges, 
Paul Robinson, Ben Pierce, and 
Mark Peeler — are seniors. Arthur 
Brantley, C'85, of Birmingham is 
also expected to figure prominently 
in the success of the Tigers this 
year. Coach Horace Moore is espe-

Women's Soccer

team is both young and 

The team finished its second sea- 
son last year one game under .500, 
and this spring Coach Peter Haley 
said he is "looking forward to our 
best year yet. We're much farther 
along now than we were last season 
at this point." 

Heidi Barker, C'85, last year's 
leading scorer, returns as does 
Nancy Brim, C'86, the goalkeeper. 
Haley has also been impressed with 
the freshmen. 

The schedule, which includes 
matches with such teams as Geor- 
gia Tech and Auburn, looks tough, 
but everyone is confident of having 
a winning season.

Something To Cheer 
About 'Most Every Night 

Men's Basketball 

The Tigers were looking like tour- 
nament material for much of the 
season, defeating Rose-Hulman on 
the road and knocking off South- 
western for early victories. 

The squad had a 14-10 record 
going into the final weekend of 
play, giving Coach Bobby Dwyer a 
good basis to launch his second 

His strategy of getting as many 
players as possible into a game pro- 
duced plenty of experience. 

Forward Jim Startz, C'85, led the 
team in both scoring and rebound- 
ing. He had close to nineteen points 
and eight rebounds a game. 

"He was able to perform well 
against much taller competition," 
said Dwyer. 

Other top scorers included Kevin 
Barnett, C'84, with eleven points a 
game, and Steve Kretsch, C'86, 
with an average of almost nine 

Women's Basketball 

Kim Valek, C'87, led a team of 
mostly freshmen and sophomores to 
an action-packed 8-14 record in the 
regular season. 

Valek, whose scoring average 
hovered near twenty points a game, 
dominated all areas of play. She 
also led the team in rebounds with 
an average of better than ten. 

Susan Steele, C'86, was second in 
scoring with an average of almost 
eleven points a game. 

Sewanee was host for the Wom- 
en's Intercollegiate Athletic Confer- 
ence championships in February. 


A successful swimming and diving 

season was put together by many 
strong performances, including con- 
sistent victories by Charles Sholten, 
C'85, and Taylor French, C'87, in 
men's diving. 

The top scorers in men's swim- 
ming were Forrest McClain, C'86, 
and Grey Hamblefcon, C'87. 

Due to illness, Dan Colella, C'84, 
never reached the form he had 
while leading the Tigers in scoring 
for three seasons. Coach Cliff Afton 
said Colella "will be greatly missed 
for his knowledge of the sport, his 
enthusiasm, and his 
competitiveness." i 

The top performers on the wom- 
en's team were Barbara Francis, 
C'85, and Marilyn Bean, C'87, who 
decided to compete in swimming 
only after being injured in track. 

The conference championships 
were held February 23-25. 


The Tigers must still look to Divi- 
sion II colleges and universities for 
most of its wrestling competition, 
making victories a bit rare. 

Individual efforts brightened the 
season for Coach Yogi Anderson's 

Armando Basarrate, C'86, of 
Chattanooga was a standout in the 
150-pound class, overcoming injury 
early in the season to compile a 13- 
7 record. In the season-ending 
NCAA Mid-East Regionals in Sewa- 
nee, he defeated the first and second 
seeds before finishing third in the 
meet. Basarrate also finished third 
in the Washington and Lee 

Other strong performers were 
Brian Masters, C'86; David Lee, 
C'86, and Shep Bentley, C'84, each 
of whom finished fourth in the Mid- 
East Regionals in his weight class. 

Sewanee Ski Team on a Lift 

by Carrie Ash ton 

Skiing snow in the Southeast re- 
sembles writing a paper during 
Homecoming; it's seemingly impos- 
sible, yet done by Sewanee students 
every year. 

The University of the South Ski 
Team (the U.S. Ski Team) devel- 
oped its present team over the past 
four years. In the current season 
full five-person women's and men's 
teams raced Slalom and Giant Sla- 
lom, skiing man-made snow at 
Beech Mountain in North Carolina 
and Ober-Gatlinburg in Tennessee. 
Student fees support the club sport 
and Carrie Ashton, the Sewanee 
Outing Club director on the Bish- 
op's Common staff, coaches the 

The Sewanee team has been 
around a while. Prior to a several- 
year hiatus, Hugh Caldwell, philos- 
ophy professor and Ski and Outing 
Club instigator, led Sewanee in 
races that also included Downhill. 
The ski team was reinstituted by 
Caroline Hopper (C'81), then a stu- 
dent trustee, as part of her legacy to 
Sewanee. She worked with me, then 

my first year as director, to re- 

ve the team in 1981. Each year 
more experienced racers return, and 
the prospects for the 1985 season 
are excellent. 

The Southern Collegiate Racing 
Association races on Fridays at 
Beech and on Thursdays at Ober- 
Gatlinburg the first four weeks of 
Easter term. Most competitors find 
the time away from classes, though 
excused, prohibits participation in 

: entire season. The team mem- 

bers for each race are all those in- 
terested who come to the open 
meeting held the day before depar- 
ture. The five-person *A* team and 
three-person *B* team for both 
women and men are "coaches' deci- 
sion," based on available knowledge 
of skills. So far, every person able to 
attend has participated in at least 
one competition. It is the high level 
of interest (seventy-one people cur- 
rently) that enabled Sewanee to 
field full teams this year. 

The spirit of fellowship and en- 
deavor combine with the stated 
goal, "to finish." Control and con- 
centration become the key to indi- 
vidual success. Some skiers enter a 
race for the first time with the 
team, and realistic expectations be- 
come part of the coaches' counsel. 
Located four to seven hours from 
the nearest snow, the U.S. Ski 
Team cannot practice routinely, yet 
returning racers such as Bobby Per- 
sons, president, C'85', 
Bertha Booker C'86, Trey Greer 
C'84, Camille McWhirter, vice-pres- 
ident, C'85, Morgan Bomar C'85, 
Jack Nichols C'84, Matt Engleby, 
treasurer, C'85, and others do well. 
This year newcomer Melissa Bulk- 
ley, C'86, placed fourth in the indi- 
vidual Slalom January 27, the best 
single finish ever for Sewanee. 

As the sun dissipates the fog of 
February and another season of 
snow in the Southeast melts into 
memory, the seemingly impossible 
will happen again for the Univer- 
sity of the South Ski Team in 1985.

The Dean's Column: 

On Preparing Presbyters 

by the Very Rev. John E. Booty 

I have been giving much thought to the church, the Episcopal church 
and the Christian ministry, and especially the preparation of future 
priests of the church. We have achieved a great, good thing in the 
enactment of the one-percent policy for the support of theological edu- 
cation. That policy means, among other things, that we are recogniz- 
ing as never before the responsibility shared by parish, seminary, and 
diocese for the education of the church's presbyters. I would suggest, 
now, that we might push further and realize the fuller implication of 
what we have done. 

In brief, it is time for the Episcopal Church to review the process 
whereby it raises up, educates, and deploys deacons and presbyters. It 
seems to me that we should now regard the formal process of theologi- 
cal education for the presbyterate as extending over at least five 
years. This would involve not only that which diocesan commissions 
on ministry do in the screening process and not only that which some 
dioceses do in vocational testing programs, but the testing of aspi- 
rants as to their knowledge of basic Christian doctrine, the Scriptures 
of the Old and New Testaments, and the fundamental course of the 
church's history. If this were done, the church's seminarians could 
then do so much more not only in terms of vocational formation but ir 
terms of enabling future presbyters to be knowledgeable, reflective, 
imaginative theologians and teachers, something we in this church sc 
desperately need. It may be that a diocese should require that its 
aspirants go through the four years of Education for Ministry, or per- 
haps, being tested and found wanting, to be tutored locally before 
entering seminary. In my dreams I imagine the possibility that the 
diocesan commissions on ministry will discern among their aspirants 
those capable of learning biblical languages and will at least encour- 
age them to do so in seminary or, where the facilities are available, 
require that they begin the study of Greek or Hebrew or both, before 

There are many places where post-seminary programs for those en- 
tering the presbyterate are conducted, some more seriously than oth- 
ers. I envision the time when we will arrive at national "guidelines" 
if not "standards" for an intern year, a year concentrating on the 
transition from the formal study of theology to the doing of theology 
in the community of faith to which the newly-ordained are sent. This 
would best be done as a diocesan program and involve a serious com- 
mitment on the part of both the diocese and the parish to the pro- 
gram. Here some of those subjects, important subjects, that General 
Convention is asking the seminaries to include within their curricula 
could be dealt with, with curricular materials developed on a national 
level and made available to dioceses for their use. This would "free" 
seminaries and seminarians to do that which constitutes their chief 
task, that is the educating of enablers of the ministry of the entire 
laos, a task that involves hermeneutical challengers of the great com- 
plexity, including the relating of the biblical-thought world with the 
contemporary-thought world in an age that demands of Christians 
the greatest zeal but also the greatest clarity of thought and

Theological Education and to your Commission on Ministry and ex- 
press your agreement. And please write to me with any ideas you

Bishops Stop in Sewanee 

The Episcopal Bishops of the Fourth 
Province were active on the Univer- 
sity campus during their meeting 
February 14-17 at the DuBose Con- 
ference Center in Monteagle. 

On the opening night of the gath- 
ering, the Very Rev. John E. Booty, 
Dean of the School of Theology, led 
the group in a meditation on minis- 
try. Later the Dean gave a lecture 
on theologian John Hooker. 

Wednesday afternoon and eve- 
ning the bishops came to the Uni- 
versity for a talk by New Testament 
Professor the Rev. Christopher 
Bryan on new and interesting de- 
velopments in New Testament stud- 
ies, and for a presentation by the 
Rev. John deBeer, director of educa- 
tional design at Bairnwick Center, 
on the method of theological reflec- 

tion used in the Education for Min- 
istry extension program. 

They also met with the faculty of 
the School of Theology to discuss 
the Seminary's statement of pur- 
pose and curriculum. After dinner 
at the home of Vice-Chancellor and 
Mrs. Robert M. Ayres, Jr., there 
was time for informal discussions.

Seminary Couple Brings a 
Global Perspective 

by Margi Moore 

David and Karen Crippen have 
spent the majority of their time 
since the middle of the 1960s work- 
ing with "special" people — the hun- 
gry, imprisoned, disadvantaged, 
and poor. And they will probably 
spend the rest of their lives doing 
the same thing. David is a junior in 
the School of Theology from the dio- 
cese of Central Florida. Karen is ad- 
ministrative assistant at the newly- 
opened office of the Society for Pro- 
moting Christian Knowledge. 

While taking Peace Corps train- 
ing shortly after they were married, 
they realized that they wanted to 
work with people overseas within 
the context of the Christian church. 
So they called the Missionary Board 
of the Church of God in Anderson, 
Indiana, and left Peace Corps train- 
ing to begin a two-year training pe- 
riod for missionary work. 

Karen attended Anderson College 
while David took classes at the 
School of Theology. They then 
moved to Nashville where David re- 
ceived a master's degree in Chris- 
tian education from Scarritt 
College. Then they were on their 
way to Kenya where David was a 
religious education advisor travel- 
ing to about one hundred schools. In 
Kenya religious education is re- 
quired for elementary school chil- 
dren and 85 percent of those in 
secondary school elect to take reli- 
gion. Programs are available in 
either Christian or Muslim educa- 
tion. Later David became the cur- 
riculum developer for religious 
education working through the Na- 
tional Christian Council of Kenya. 

While there, Karen began and 
managed a bookshop distributing 
Christian literature to the prov- 
inces. During their second stay in 
Kenya she was a social worker in a 
slum area of Nairobi. 

Karen says their work and lives 
are a "response to God's goodness 
and love and gifts to us. When you 
see that the people there are unfa- 
miliar with God's love as expressed 
in Jesus Christ, you feel compelled 
to share the good news." 

They have also worked in So- 
malia and Thailand. In Somalia 
David was the program director and 
Karen the personnel coordinator for 
World Concern, a relief and devel- 
opment agency. The main thrust of 
their work was medical assistance 
to refugees in two camps near the 
Ethiopian border. 

In the same positions in Thai- 
land, they worked with Food for the 
Hungry and had total responsibility 
for feeding over 50,000 refugees in 
seven camps. They worked with 
Laotian, Cambodian, and Vietnam- 
ese people, supervising an expa- 
triate staff that numbered seventy 
over the two years of their stay, 
plus about three hundred Thai and 
refugee workers and assistants. 

Those were busy, exhausting 
years for the family. An example of 
the crises they regularly encoun- 
tered was a phone call from the 
United Nations saying a fire had 
destroyed much of one of the refu- 
gee camps. Could they provide eat- 
ing and cooking utensils for about 
4,000 people immediately? 

Their work has involved some 
travel. In Burma they were guests 
of Archbishop Gregory. He took 
them to a service at a village 
church where he preached and cele- 
brated barefooted. In Calcutta, the 
entire family worked as volunteers 
at Mother Teresa's Home for the 
Destitute and Dying. They distrib- 
uted medicine and fed residents 
who were unable to feed them- 

While in Kenya they attended the 
community church whose priest was 
Anglican. They were confirmed in 
the Episcopal Church when they re- 
turned to the United States in the 
late 1970s. In January 1984 all 
three of their daughters were con- 
firmed and have since served as 
crucifer and torchbearers at Otey 
Memorial Church in Sewanee. 

"Out daughters are participating 
in our ministry," said David. "They 
all feel good about where they are 
and where they have been. We talk 
about it a lot." He continued by say- 
ing that the girls became involved 
in their work overseas, assisting 
staff members in the refugee camps. 

In between the years of overseas' 
work David has gotten his doctorate 
from Peabody College (now part of 
Vanderbilt) in Nashville and has 
worked as education supervisor at a 
state prison in Florida. While 
Karen was getting her degree in so- 
cial work from Florida Southern, 
David taught in two colleges in cen- 
tral Florida. Karen has also been a 
social worker at a school for disad- 
vantaged and delinquent children. 

Their years of work have been in 
the lay ministry. "I never felt called 
to the ordained ministry before the 
last couple of years," said David. 
"Now I feel that I want to com- 
pletely devote my life to God and 
the work of the church. I am here 
because I felt a calling to the priest- 

Their decision was reached after 
much prayer about two years ago in 
Thailand. David talked with the 
priest in Bangkok and wrote to his 
rector in Lakeland, Florida. The di- 
ocesan procedure was begun. Since 
David had been an Episcopalian a 
relatively short time, he looked for 
a seminary that was steeped in the 
Anglican tradition. Sewanee is. He 
was happy to discover that his 
classmates were from diverse back- 

David and Karen have no plans 
past seminary. "In the past," she 
said, "God hasn't let us know this 
far in advance what we'll be doing. 
We feel comfortable that we'll know 
when the time comes." 

Introduction to Ministry 

When the Conference on Ministry 
was planned last fall, the School of 
Theology expected about twenty 
participants. Fifty-two people at- 
tended the three-day program Feb- 
ruary 3-5, 1984. 

Student coordinator Hamilton 
Fuller, T86, said, "The conference 
provided an opportunity for inquir- 
ers about the ordained or lay minis- 
try to discuss leadership roles 
within the church, the ministry of 
the church, and their response to 
God's call." 

Dean John E. Booty said, "I was 
pleasantly surprised at the re- 
sponse. I talked with three people 
who didn't know what Sewanee was 
before the conference; now this 
would be the place they would want 
to come for seminary." 

Administrative assistant Patricia 
Smith said it was impressive that 
the conference was not put on by 
the Dean's office, but by the entire 
seminary. Visitors stayed in stu- 
dents' homes and ate meals with 

Participants came from Rhode Is- 
land, Ohio, Virginia, Alabama, 
Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, 
Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, 
and North Carolina, as well as Ten- 

In evaluating the program, one 
participant said, "I appreciate the 
honesty of the seminarians, faculty, 
and the priests who spoke to us. I 
felt in most of my conversations a 
desire on everyone's part to be as 
helpful as possible — they under- 
stood our struggle. It is comforting 
to know that as we go through this 
process there will be some of you 
who are praying for us." 

Another said he appreciated their 
"willingness and ability to try to 
answer every question no matter 
how stupid or unanswerable." 

"Many of the participants found 
the conference non-threatening," 
said Mr. Fuller. "Questions about 
very important issues could be dealt 
with in a non-evaluative setting; 
whereas, if they are in their dioce- 
san homes, the process can be eval- 
uative from the beginning." 

Dean Booty hopes to have an en- 
tering class of thirty for the fall of 
1984, and said that this conference 
may help in that regard. But the 
real effects of the conference will 
probably be felt over the next two or 
three years as the participants go 
through their diocesan processes for 

Distinguished Alumnus/a 

When the School of Theology Al- 
umni Council meets on May 2 an 
announcement will be made about 
the Seminary's Distinguished 
Alumnus/a Award for 1984. 

According to the guidelines, the 
award recognizes individuals "who 
have served our Lord and his people 
in the church and in society faith- 
fully and well. Furthermore, the 
award seeks to recognize those who 
have been loyal to and supportive of 
the School of Theology and the Uni- 
versity of which it is a part." 

The recipient must be a living 

graduate of the School of Theology 
and may not be an active member of 
the Alumni Council, the Board of 
Trustees, or the Board of Regents. 
The recipient may not be a current 
employee of the University and may 
not have received an honorary de- 

Nominations were received until 
the first Friday in March.

Sewanee Clubs Far and Wide 

Middle Georgia 

After several years of desuetude, 
the Sewanee Club of Middle Geor- 
gia has been "refounded." The de- 
parture for Atlanta of Billy 
Harrison, C'66, the club's founding 
genius and guiding spirit, had dev- 
astated Sewanee spirit in the heart 
of the Heart of Georgia. It was as in 
Judges 21:25 — "In those days there 
was no king in Israel: every man 
did that which was right in his own 
eyes," and the Sewanee Club did 
not meet. 

But in June, 1983, a prophet 
named Michael Owens, T'83, came 
down from the hills to call the peo- 
ple to return to the covenant, and, 
lo, they responded. An organiza- 
tional meeting was held in August, 
and new officers were elected. They 
are president Mike Cass, C'63; vice- 
president Mike Owens; secretary- 
treasurer Lynn Cass; and chancel- 
lor/auditor/ guiding spirit Don 
Johnson, C'48. 

Before the club's next meeting, 
Richard Tillinghast, C'62, came to 
read his poetry in Macon, and, al- 
though this was not an official Se- 
wanee Club event, several area 
alumni and friends of Sewanee or 
poetry attended the reading and 
gathered afterwards at the Casses' 

At the November meeting the of- 
ficers presented amended bylaws to 
the other members and asked for 
their best thoughts on how to main- 
tain the club and its purposes. It 
was agreed that the club's purpose 
was to sustain the Sewanee ethos in 
Middle Georgia, as an end in itself 
and as a means to the end of sup- 
porting Sewanee in her raising up 
of the never-ending succession of 
benefactors and matriculants. De- 
spite the serious discussion that 
took place, the meeting was much 

Held at Don and Libby Johnson's 
house, the meeting was brightened 
by the presence of younger alumni: 

Bruce Hofstadter, C'71; Tim Calla- 
han, C'72; Connie Hynes, C'78; 
Scott demons, Chip Manning, Bill 
Brumby, and Ben Willis, C'82; and 
"C" Hinrichs, Connie Crawford, and 
Sallie Robinson, C'83. 

The club now hopes to enjoy its 
first full year of "refoundedness," 
beginning with a meeting in March.

The Atlanta Sewanee Club is defi- 
nitely starting its new year on the 
right foot. We had an enjoyable 
Founders' Day dinner on October 13 
at Neiman-Marcus, and we owe our 
delightful dinner and surroundings 
to Sophie Mason, wife of Tommy 
Mason, C'64. After dinner our out- 
going president, Bryan Starr, C'68, 
said a few words and was followed 
by our new president, Jim Grier, 
who introduced our speaker, Ed 
Wilkes, director of admissions for 
the college. 

It is clearly the consensus of the 
Atlanta Sewanee Club that Ed 
Wilkes is an excellent addition to 
the admissions department. He pre- 
sented us with an interesting look 
at today's admissions process, the 
students Sewanee has and is look- 
ing for, and the alumni role in 

many aspects of Sewanee's admis- 
sions work. We are all more in- 
formed about Sewanee and where 
the school stands at present after 
Ed's talk. Being better informed 
usually leads to increased interest, 
which in turn leads to involvement. 
This, I hope, will be the case with 
the Atlanta Club in the upcoming 

A cocktail party was held Decem- 
ber 7 at the home of Montague 
Boyd, C'74, and his wife, Laura. 

Lisa McDonough and I are both 
pleased to be the first women to be 
honored with offices in the Atlanta 
Sewanee Club and look forward to 
an exciting year.

New Orleans 

I want to thank everyone for help- 
ing to bring the Sewanee Club of 
New Orleans back to life. Our re- 
cruiting efforts in the schools are 
yielding tremendous results. We've 
helped several alums who were new 
to the area in their quests for jobs. 
We've had some very enjoyable so- 
cial events, including our January 
reception honoring current and 
prospective students, a softball 
match against the Washington and 
Lee alumni in the summer, and an 
expedition to Jackson in September 
to cheer for the Tigere against Mill- 
saps. Out copious efforts paid off 
when we were awarded the Dobbins 
Trophy as the best Sewanee Club in 
the country. 

The coming year promises to be 
another success. In the recruiting 
department, judging from the num- 
ber of interested students we met 
when the admissions office repre- 
sentative was in town, we've got 
more prospects to work with this 
year than last. In addition to the 
events planned this winter, I hope 
to arrange a basketball/ volleyball 
matchup against the Washington 
and Lee club as well as a softball re- 
match in the summer. I would also 
like for us to have a picnic across 
the lake in August. I then invite 
you all to Sewanee in October to re- 
ceive the Dobbins Trophy again. 
Brad Jones, C'79 

Joseph D. Cushman, C'49, professor 
of history, and Mary Sue Cushman, 
dean of women, were special guests 
at a New Orleans reception Janu- 
ary 8 for current and prospective 
students. The event was held at the 
Garden District home of Ingersoll 
Jordan, C'65. 


The Washington, D. C, area has 
over the years been a popular choice 
for relocation among Sewanee grad- 
uates. In recent years the number of 
new graduates coming to this area 
has been increasing. But without 
some help, Washington remains a 
difficult place for a newcomer to get 
started, particularly when it comes 
to looking for that first job 

There has always existed a loose 
network of D. C. area alumni who 
have been helpful to recent gradu- 
ates seeking employment. Encour- 
aged by this, we are now 
attempting to expand and 
strengthen a booklet on area al- 
umni for use by seniors at the Uni- 
versity and recent graduates. The 
booklet will provide current and 
previous job information about area 
alumni. An interested student may 
then contact alumni for general ad- 
vice on things such as training, re- 
quirements, interview preparations, 
job openings, and the like. This will 
not only help those who may al- 
ready be interested in coming to 
Washington, but it will also allow 
other Sewanee students to learn 
what is available in the area.

late and would welcome a lift."

Honored by

William O. Baldwin, A'12, C'16, 
was inducted into the Alabama 
Bankers Association Half Cen- 
tury Club this summer. He was 
one of only fifty-two bankers to 
qualify for membership with fifty 
years of active banking service in 

He was vice-president of First 
Alabama Bank of Montgomery 
from 1926 until his retirement in 
1960 and was a member of the 
board of directors from 1931 until 

In 1960, Walter Kennedy, then 
president of the bank, wrote, 
"The name Baldwin will always 
be an integral part of First Na- 
tional Bank (as it was then 
called). His is a niche that is 
unique and can never be 

He was referring to the fact 
that Mr. Baldwin's grandfather 
founded the bank in 1871 and 
was its first president. His father 
was president from 1898 until 
1929 and chairman of the board 
until 1931. 

"Red" Baldwin, who graduated 
from Annapolis in 1918 and 
served in the Navy, is known for 
his jokes and pranks as well as 
for his favorite pastime, walking 
from home to bank. According to 
a story in The First Word, a pub- 
lication of First Alabama Bank, 
"Very few could match his pace 
up or down the Court Street Hill, 
and everyone knew that when he 
walked on the left side of the 
street, he was walking for exer- 
cise; if on the right side, he was 
late and would welcome a lift."

Mission of 

Joanna Fitts, C'82, of Tuscaloosa, 
Alabama, and Little Rock, Ar- 
kansas, spent nearly a week in 
Belize, Central America, last fall, 
as one of seven persons chosen by 
the Presiding Bishop to represent 
the Episcopal Church in an effort 
to understand Central America's 
refugee problems. 

Belize, formerly known as Brit- 
ish Honduras, has been flooded 
by as many as 20,000 refugees 
from El Salvador and Guate- 
mala; some of these are in a refu- 
gee settlement known as the 
Valley of Peace. 

Joanna, chosen because of her 
work with young people during 
high school and college years, 
stayed with a teacher and her 

daughter in the capital city of 
Belmopan. She said that al- 
though each refugee family has 
been granted about fifty acres to 
farm, the people must walk from 
two to five miles from their 
shanty houses to get to their 
farming plots. She thought the 
numerous children seemed 
happy, but their present school- 
ing is minimal. The makeshift 
housing is deplorable with the 
most primitive sanitary facilities. 

In addition to visiting the refu- 
gees, the group met with the 
Prime Minister of Belize, the 
Deputy Prime Minister, repre- 
sentatives of the opposition 
party, labor union and business 
leaders, the ecumenical Chris- 
tian Council, and many members 
of the Anglican Church in Belize. 

Joanna, who took paralegal 
training in Atlanta, now works 
as a legal aide in Little Rock.

Cemetery Plan Announced 

Many alumni and other people 
across the country have asked if 
burial plots are available in the Se- 
wanee Cemetery. In today's tran- 
sient life, many people cannot claim 
a hometown in which they wish to 
be buried, and because they love Se- 
wanee, they think that burial on 
the Sewanee campus might be the 

The space remaining in the Sewa- 
nee Cemetery is very limited. For 
some years new lots have been re- 
tained for persons actually resident 
in Sewanee, and most of the old 
family plots are filled. But the Se- 
wanee Cemetery Association, which 
administers the cemetery for the 
University, has agreed upon a long- 
range solution. 

A space has been enclosed in the 
corner between the first carriage 
gate on Georgia Avenue and the 
Miller footgate nearest duPont Li- 
brary. The small special garden 
within the cemetery walls has been 
enclosed in a new stone wall to form 
a columbarium in which only the

ashes of those wishing to be buried 
there may be placed. 

Certain rules apply. The actual 
spot where the interment is made 
will not be identified. The entire 
area will be maintained as a gar- 
den, and burial must be in biode- 
gradable urns. The inner surface of 
the new stone wall will be used to 
mount bronze plaques which will be 
limited to full name and dates of 
birth and death. The plaques will be 
mounted in order of burial. 

The fee of $250 includes the use 
of the garden, the plaque and its 
mounting, and the fee for opening 
and closing the burial space. The 
purchase of burial rights in the new 
garden may be made at any time 
without reference to time of use. Ar- 
rangements may be made by writ- 
ing to the Sewanee Cemetery 
Association, SPO Box 1145, Univer- 
sity of the South, Sewanee, TN 

The Cemetery Association would 
like to receive suggestions for a 
suitable name for this new garden.

New Location for the School of Theology 

The School of Theology , which has 
been housed in St. Luke's Hall for 
more than 100 years, will move 
across the campus this summer to 
the former location of the Sewanee 

The former Academy 
administration and classroom 
building, Hamilton Hall, has been 
undergoing renovation since April. 

"The new location will provide us 
with more space and more 
flexibility than we have in St. 
Luke's Hall," said the Very Rev. 
John £. Booty, dean of the School of 
Theology, who anticipates a growth 
in enrollment for the Seminary. 
"Even this year's junior (beginning) 
class must meet in the old library 
reading room because there is not a 
classroom large enough." 

The move may represent an even 
more significant change than is 
obvious in the abandonment of St. 
Luke's Hall for the roomier home 
less than a mile away. The 
additional space provided by 
Hamilton Hall, and the nearby 
four-story Quintard Hall dormitory 
and Cravens Hall, with its 
auditorium and dining facilities, 
will be available for a range of 
programs, including church 
conferences, workshops, 
conventions, and other church 
outreach activities. These three 
buildings have been virtually 
vacant since the Academy was 
merged with St. Andrew's School 
over three years ago. 

The opportunities to expand the 
University's outreach and seminary 
programs were of major interest to 
Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Ayres, 
Jr. With a vision of these 
possibilities, Mr. Ayres initiated a 
study a year and a half ago to 
consider potential uses of the 
Academy facilities. The move of the 
Seminary is only the first of these 
anticipated changes. 

Two newly-funded programs will 
welcome space in the facilities — the 
Sewanee Peace and Justice Center, 
which is planning a series of 
conferences, and the Society for 
Promoting Christian Knowledge 
(SPCK/USA). The new campus will 
also be the focus of the Episcopal 
World Mission Conference, which 
has grown to an anticipated 
enrollment this June of 300 people. 

Vice-Chancellor Ayres has also 
expressed interest in beginning a 
stewardship center for evangelism 
and a variety of programs designed 
to enhance parish and diocesan life. 
In discussing opportunities offered 
by the facilities, he said he is 
seeking a stronger role than ever 
for Sewanee in the mission of the 
Episcopal Church. 

"Were it not for the twenty-seven 
dioceses, the 1,800 parishes and 
missions, and the half-million 
communicants who own this 
University, Sewanee would not 
exist," said Mr. Ayres. "We are 
exploring new and better ways to 
support the churches as they have 

Commencement 1984 

Commencement weekend at 
Sewanee is a celebration of Western 
Civilization. It pays tribute to 
scholarship. It reflects the spectrum 
of moods and emotions. It is held in 
such awe that even lower classmen 
stay over to watch and revel with 
their compatriots. 

Scores of parents, other relatives, 
and friends were unable to find 
seats for Commencement, and they 
stayed outside watching the gowned 
graduates, colorfully-hooded faculty 
members, and clergy in regalia 
process along the stone walks from 
Breslin Tower and Walsh Hall to 
All Saints' Chapel. 

The day before, the Rev. Thomas 
D. Bowers, C'53, the rector of St. 
Bartholomew's Church in New 
York City, delivered the 
baccalaureate sermon. He was one 
of seven persons to receive an 
honorary degree at Commencement. 

The Commencement convocation 
included the announcement of 
awards as well as the conferring of 

been supporting us by sending 
funds and students." 

The renovation of Hamilton Hall 
involves the creation of faculty 
offices from a few of the classrooms 
and the development of guest 
quarters and meeting rooms. The 
building already contains an 
auditorium and spacious reception 
areas and administrative office 
space, which were lacking in St. 
Luke's Hall. 

"The school is changing and 
growing, and the move contributes 
to the realization of positive change 
and growth," said Dean Booty, who 
added that Hamilton Hall has an 
openness of design more in keeping 
with the forward-looking attitude of 
the Seminary. 

Far from remaining vacant, St. 
Luke's Hall will provide much- 
needed space for the College of Arts 
and Sciences, including faculty 
offices, administrative offices, 
meeting rooms, and perhaps guest 
apartments and dormitory rooms. 

Howells Give 
New Chapel 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul N. Howell of 
Houston, Texas, have made a gift to 

the University of $750,000 to 
permit construction of a chapel on 
the new campus of the School of 

The gift was announced after a 
visit by the Howells to Sewanee this 
spring. Plans were being made at 
the time to move the Seminary to 
the former location of the Sewanee 
Academy where no suitable chapel 

Dean John E. Booty said the gift 
provides the Seminary with a 
wonderful opportunity to build a 
chapel that will be a true teaching 
chapel. While specific architectural 
plans have yet to be drawn, the 
dean said he anticipates that the 
new chapel will serve as a model for 
church construction elsewhere by 
demonstrating the use of flexible 
space for multiple purposes and to 
accommodate the variety of liturgy 
permitted by the new Prayer Book. 
Construction could begin as early as 

Mr. Howell is chairman, 
president, and chief executive 
officer of the Howell Corporation, a 
Texas energy company concerned 
with petroleum refining, 
exploration, and transportation. 

He and Mrs. Howell are active 
Episcopalians and have both served 
as senior wardens of the Church of 
St. John the Divine in Houston. Mr. 
Howell is also the Houston area 
chairman of the Century II Fund, 
Sewanee's $50-million capital funds 

The valedictory address was 
given by David E. Brumgard of 

York, Pennsylvania, a graduate in 
mathematics and physics. He spoke 
of the Sewanee education as not 
only the gaining of facts but also 
the sharing of ideas and thoughts, 
which provide a counterbalance to 
the dangers illustrated in Orwell's 

"We have become part of the 
Sewanee family," said Brumgard, 
who added that the graduates could 
help bring others into the family, 
into a family of the human race. 
"No Big Brother can hope to 
dominate such a family of love." 

Carlotta Cooper of Chattanooga, 
a graduate in English, was the 

Of the 267 graduates, 178 
received the Bachelor of Arts 
degree, and sixty-three received the 
Bachelor of Science degree. Master 
of Divinity degrees were awarded to 
nineteen graduates of the School of 
Theology. Doctor of Ministry 
degrees went to five graduates; one 
received the Master of Sacred 
Theology; and one was awarded the 
Licentiate in Theology.

Writing on the Banks 
of Sewanee 

by Alan Chouse 

Imagine a chemistry class without formulas, or the practice of a team of 
trainees for the decathlon, with a touch of internship in the pathology 
lab of a city hospital (and woe to him or her who can't stand the sight of 
blood or smell of bile) thrown in. Add, perhaps, a bit of the regimen of 
the novice monk for good measure, as well as an atmosphere upon 
occasion resembling that of the sem i -fin a 1 s of 'most any state's Miss 
America pageant and the blue-ribbon judging for best roses — or hog — at 
the county fair. 

It's a typical writing workshop session I'm attempting to describe 
here, not hobby night at Charenton Asylum. Considering the lack of 
form and the seeming absence of tradition, I'm always surprised that 
every writing class in the country doesn't turn out to be as mad as the 
former, and as fruitless. (Only about half of them do.) It's something 
resembling the miracle of gestation that good writing often comes out of 
such sessions. But given the principle that good writing programs don't 
make good writing, only good writers do, it may not seem so remarkable 
after all to hear the news that the current participants in the writing 
workshop at the University of the South stand as tall, if not taller, than 
just about any group that I've directed at its labors in the past five 

Sewanee and good writing, yea , Sewanee and literature, appear to 
have gone hand-in-hand ever since the Sewanee Review signed up its 
first subscriber — since William Alexander Percy struck a match and lit 
his first lantern on the levee. In modern times, as any literate American 
knows, some giants stalked this part of the plateau — Allen Tate and 
Andrew Lytle — and their presence here acted as a magnet for a number 
of other fine writers whose visits to their image-making cronies and 
fellow story-tellers added anecdote upon legend. 

(Up in the snow-buried industrial warrens of the Northeast, the likes 
of yours truly warmed themselves in winter by reading about 
Faulknerian hot-lands far to the south of us and pictured graveyards 
loamed with Confederate dead. We knew that Sewanee wasn't a river — 
because we had heard Jason Compson's lament that, while up at 
Harvard they taught you to swim at night, at Sewanee they didn't even 
teach you about water. Several of the most important teachers in my 
own life had links to Sewanee, specifically Francis Fergusson who was a 
friend of Tate's, as was Joseph Frank who published hiB epochal study of 
modernist literature, Spatial Form in Modern Fiction, in the pages of 
the Review.) 

The most recent addition to the Sewanee literary production is 
Richard Tillinghast's Our Flag Was Still There,& book of poems.his 
third. If hard work fueled by passion and dedication means anything — 
and it does, it .still does — Tillinghast (Sewanee, class of 1962) is not 
going to be the last published Sewanee writer. Some of those "boys and 
girls who call themselves men and women, these ripe-fruit bodies and 
untouched smiles," whom the poet describes in his Sewanee in Ruins, 
appear to have ripened rather quickly as writers during the few months 
in which I've found myself — in the less than familiar garb of academic 
gown and suit-coat — standing before the semi-circle of desks reading to 
them from their own first drafts of stories. In both its frustrations and 
joys, the teaching of writing (and I was almost tempted to put 
"teaching" in quotation marks for reasons I'm about to confess) 
resembles more than superficially the coaching of a varsity sport. Like 
the college football coach in Mary Robison's wonderful story^'Coach," 
you can tell the players what to do but you can't climb down inside them 
and change their hearts. (Given the mental strain and, often, physical 
anguish associated with the act of writing the workshop probably ought 
to be cross-listed with P.E. and philosophy in the university's general 

Yea — since if you have read this far you are undoubtedly wondering 
about the question — out of this group of seniors, juniors, and 
sophomores, numbering fewer than a dozen, one or two may possibly 
still be writing ten years from now. A prideful person might try to take 
some credit for whatever success these young writers may achieve. But 
the force of native talent, drive, and the sheer plod of the determined 
artist will get them wherever they arrive, not the tentative instructions 
of another writer who happens merely to be older, and thus slightly 
more experienced. So much of it has to do with the ability to Bit in one 
place every day for years and dream while wide awake that it 
sometimes seems laughable even to consider writing as a suitable

But if the successful production of writers remains somewhat 
problematical, there remains a sound and dramatic imperative for 
building workshops in the composition of fiction and poetry into the 
regular course listings of an English department: the certainty of the 
production of better readers. Borges says in a poem that he's as proud of 
the books he's read as he is of the books he has written. Writing 
students may at some point flag in their determination to write 
themselves into Sewanee literary history, but their work in the 
interstices of fiction and verse, their sharp and intense scrutiny of how 
poems and stories get made, will stay with them no matter what 
direction their lives take. Once having read themselves into literary 
history, they'll never read themselves out. 

Mr. Cheuse was a Brown Foundation fellow and visiting professor of 
English and comparative literature at Sewanee during the spring 
semester. He is the author of 'The Bohemians (a novel), Candace and 
Other Stories, and numerous articles and reviews in national 
publications. He is a regular commentator on National Public Radio's 
evening news-magazine "All Things Considered." In the autumn, he will 
be visiting in the MFA Fiction Program at the University of Michigan. 

In Sewanee's 
Deep Waters 

by Trippe Cheek, C'84 

First of all, you have to remember that the seats in Walsh-Ellett are not 
comfortable. Far from it. Sit in one of those ladder backed chairs, 
torturing your spine by leaning over a narrow wobbly table for an hour, 
and you'll confess to a multitude of heinous offenses against God and 
Country just for a chance to get up. 

Add to that — in case you have forgotten — the fact that professors of 
English literature are unfailingly so dedicated to and in love with the 
various features of their chosen field (and convinced of the indescribable 
benefits in each and every syllable of the Norton Anthology) that they 
cannot bear to refrain from adding the most subtle nuances of 

(continued on next page) 

That is: English teachers always run late. 

After four years, I am finally becoming resigned to hearing the 
thundering herd of economics, political science, and history majors 
stamping down the halls just because some concatenation of metals in 
Breslin Tower rang after deciding on their own it was time for classes to 
end. In English, we never quit until the time is right, no matter what 
the clock says. Tailbones — as nonverbally eloquent as they may be — have 
no say in the matter. 

So why put the extra pressure on the base of the backbone? Why risk 
daily irritations of that little leftover stub of our prehensile past? Is it 
enough simply to avoid dealing with constitutions, dates, and graphs? 

Perhaps a parable will help to explain the English major's valiant 
disregard for the pelvis-stiffening and curvature of the spine that must 
result from many morning hours spent peniBing poems and prose: 

Once there was a teacher of freshman English who decided it was 
time to tell his students why the study of literature is important. 
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said, adopting a gruff and yet sincere tone 
of voice, "it could be that the wisest man who ever lived was Socrates. 
Mayhaps you have heard of him. Of all the many smart things he 
said, the most essential was his belief that the only path to true 
wisdom is to realize that you really know nothing at all." Amidst the 
silence, he continued: "As you study literature, you will find that the 
more you learn, the less you know in relation to the whole scheme of 
things," There were some in his audience who did not believe. 

There was a certain young man (his name, I confess, at the moment 
escapes me) who was skeptical of the professor's assessment. He read 
John Milton's "Lycidas" and thought Milton a show-off, a name- 
dropper. He read The Waste Land of T. S. Eliot and thought Eliot 
worse even than Milton. Some unreasonable instructor insisted that 
he read Eliot again, then again, then again. Of this cruel torture came 
something strange (surely a fluke which could never happen today). 
The young man began to understand a little of what Eliot was talking 
about - or, perhaps, he began to take Eliot's words in his own peculiar 
way of interpretation that made sense to him, if not to anyone else. 

There are those who might call this learning. 

There are those who might think it helps in life. 

I have been assured by many friends in a variety of so-called 
"scientific" majors that the real world has no place for one who has 
studied literature. For a while, my response was that I did not care, that 
I was doing it because I wanted to. 

Now, however, I respond differently. 

Those unfamiliar with critical theory and the way literature relates to 
life might begin by reading Matthew Arnold, who saw literary criticism 
as an important means of reordering contemporary life. Then let him 
study the theories of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and John Keats. 
Coleridge writes of the "willing suspension of disbelief; Keats in his 
letters discusses the concept of "negative capability." These terms are 
well-known and bandied about frequently by those who sometimes have 
a limited understanding of what they actually mean. 

Underlying the theories of Coleridge and Keats is a basic realization 
that one can never be quite sure of anything. It is no more possible to 
come up with an exact interpretation of a work of art than it is to define 
exactly what makes up a human life. Art and life are alike in their 
inexpressible natures, even if in nothing else. 

Shawn Kirkpatrick, C'86, crams /or exams. 

Of late, it has appeared to me a certainty that education is a gradual 

I compare myself after four years of study with myself as a freshman. 
The difference is quite marked, yet I cannot seem to establish any clear 
set of steps along the way. 

What I think have been apparent in all aspects of my study of English 
literature are the twin streams of inspiration and method. My own 
essays for various classes can be grouped into those written from some 
sudden idea, those rationally worked out in a certain pattern, and those 
lucky ones that manage to combine the two. 

Teachers, I believe, work the same way. 

English as it is taught at Sewanee depends upon the lecture. The 
lecture is no more than an essay on foot, an essay come to life. It is quite 
obvious that there are those who lecture from a set of ideas that is 
constantly changing, always ready to discard one thought and replace it 
with another, interested in illumination, the high points and the low. 
There are also those who lecture in a determined and methodical way, 
who find a pattern and explicate it. Both sorts work. Both sorts get at 
critical meaning. t 

But the best teachers can go about it both ways, and do. Any new 
idea, extraneous as it may seem, can find a place in their presentations 
if it has validity. If the old patterns no longer fit, they make up new 
ones. Their lectures are solid, yet malleable. These teachers are the 

Even they, however, go past the hour. Sometimes one just has to 
make a trade-off. 

Running Start 
to Optimism 

by Patrick Anderson 

What role did Sewanee, from which 
1 graduated more than a quarter- 
century ago, play in my becoming a 

To be honest, I think most writers 
•are thus inclined long before 
college. Certainly I was. Various 
factors — my parents' divorce, my 
grandmother teaching me to read at 
age four, my resentments as a not- 
rich kid at a very rich Texas high 
school — all shaped the bookish 
inclinations and outsider's point of 
view that helped make me a writer. 

1 spent my freshman year 
guzzling beer at North Texas State, 
a pleasant enough place, but I 
dreamed of escaping Texas. I had a 
friend at Sewanee, Pat McCaleb, 
and at Easter I rode a Greyhound 
bus up to visit him. I fell in love 
with the dogwood-drenched 
Mountain, of course, but couldn't 
afford it. A year later, in the fall of 
1955, 1 managed the finances and 
arrived as a junior. 

A new world, paradise gained! My 
first day on campus, a delegation 
from my fraternity arrived in my 
room to see what sort of uncouth 
Texan had been thrust upon them. 
We eyed each other suspiciously, 
until a gangling lad with the 
unlikely name of Tupper Saussy 
seized one of my Dave Brubeck 
records, held it high, and cried, 
"You can put it on the wall instead 
of a crucifix!" 

I was home. 

Having traveled far to study 
English at Sewanee, I was an 
indifferent scholar. Abbo Martin 
awarded me one "A" and later 
bitterly cursed his mistake; 
otherwise I was a reliable "B" 
student. Still, I learned. By far the 
most valuable course I took, the 
only one that mattered in later life, 

was Dr. Charles Harrison's course 
on the poetry of the English 

Much of its value was Dr. 
Harrison himself, for he epitomized 
all that a scholar and a gentleman 
could be. Yet the material was 
magic too. Once you begin to hear 
the music of "Gather ye rosebuds 
while ye may" and "Had we but 
world enough and time," and all the 
other great lyrics, you glimpse the 
possibilities of our language. 

I still have my Hebel and Hudson 
textbook from that course, with my 
marginal notes on Dr. Harrison's 
Delphic pronouncements; I suppose 
it is the one book I've most often 
returned to in my life. 

Still, Sewanee did more for me 
outside the classroom than in it. I 
arrived from Texas, awed by the 
prep-school sophistication and 
aristocratic lineages of many of my 
new classmates, only to find, to my 
amazement, that I could hold my 
own with them. From that point on, 
all things seemed possible. I would 
be the next Scott Fitzgerald, and in 
my spare time Tupper and I would 
team up to be the nextRodgers and 

Would-be writers need that 
running start to optimism, for the 
hurdles ahead are many. 

Sewanee gave me another, post- 
graduate boost. I knocked around a 
bit, worked for a newspaper in Los 
Angeles, and then, thanks to an ill- 
fated romance, found myself back in 
Sewanee in the early days of 1959, 
unburdened by funds or prospects. 

I chanced to chat with Arthur 
Ben Chitty, who told me that a 
Sewanee alumnus, Coleman 
Harwell, was the editor of the 
Nashville Tennessean. I hastened to

Nashville and was hired as a $65-a- 
week reporter. It was one of the two 
or three luckiest days of my life, for 
in those days Coleman Harwell had 
made the Tennessean a great 
Southern newspaper. My real 
writing career started there, and in 
a few years it was a logical leap to 
John Kennedy's New Frontier, and 
in time to writing the novels I'd 
been dreaming about from age 
sixteen or so. 

So Sewanee played its part, by 
teaching me about the language, by 
showing me I was better than I 
knew, and by setting standards that 
Fm still trying to meet. I love the 
place and miss it.

prolific writer of both fiction and 
non-fiction. He began his career as a 
reporter for the Nashville 

Tennessean in 1959 and by 1962 

was a writer on Robert Kennedy's 
staff in Washington. In 1965 he 
began a more independent writing 
career, which has led to the 
publication of articles and reviews 
in the New York Times Magazine, 
Esquire, Playboy, the New York 
Times Book Review, the New 
Republic, and other publications. He 
has written two books of nonfiction, 
The President's Men and High in 
America, and four political novels, 
The Approach to Kings, Actions and 
Passions, The President's Mistress, 
and First Family. His new novel, 
Lords of the Earth, about a wealthy 
Texas oil family, was published 
recently by Doubleday. Mr. 
Anderson was Jimmy Carter's chief 
speechwriter in the 1976 
presidential campaign and was a 
writer for Sen. John Glenn's 
presidential campaign earlier this 
year. He and his wife and two 
children make their home in

Are You that Fellow? 

by Sam Pickering, C'63 

Last month I received a letter 
that began: "Are you the Samuel 
Pickering who went to Sewanee 
twenty years ago?" I did not know 
how to answer the letter. A boy 
with my name once attended 
Sewanee, and although I knew him 
fairly well and think I liked him, he 
has long since disappeared. I 
believe some good things happened 
to him at Sewanee, and I have often 

considered writing about them. The 
trouble, though, is that I am not 
sure if the things I remember 
actually happened. Did that boy 
really carry a hammer into Abbo 
Martin's class one day, and when 
his friend Jimmy asked why he had 
it, say "for nailing hands to desks?" 
And did he really tell Jimmy to put 
his hand out flat on the desk if he 
didn't believe him — whereupon 

trusting an old roommate Jimmy 
did so. When Mr. Martin asked 
Jimmy why he had screamed, did 
Jimmy say, "Pickering hit me with 
a hammer." And did that boy then 
stand up and say, "I cannot tell a 
lie; I hit him with my little 

No, no, the person I have become 
certainly didn't do that. Still, a 
Pickering was at Sewanee, and 
although the past seems too distant 
to be significant, Sewanee does live 
in my present. I teach and 
occasionally write about university 
life. As a result, I sometimes think 
about my professors at Sewanee. 
What went through Charles 
Harrison's mind when he taught 
that "me" of twenty years ago, too 
young for ideas or appreciation? Did 
his thoughts drift from Walsh Hall 
and Shakespeare like mine do now? 
In class the other day I realized that 
the jacket I was wearing had been 
made in 1964 and was older than 
most of my students. Beside that 
thought all else paled, and although 
words kept rolling from me like a 
woodland stream in the spring, I 
was far away in a drier, colder land. 
And what would Gilbert Gilchrist 
think if I told him that since 
leaving Sewanee I have not met a 
politician, not even a member of the 
town council. Twenty years ago I 
took all Gilbert's courses, deeply 
certain that political science would 
be important in my life. No one 
could have enjoyed lectures more, 
and yet, today, even though I write 
for newspapers, I haven't read one 
in two years. Governments come 
and go, and I am too busy being idle 
to keep track of them. 

Every afternoon I run Beven 
miles. Yesterday as I picked my 
way along a dirt road behind a 
dormitory, students raised a 
window and shouted, "Professor, we 
love you." It was a good day; 
usually the students are not so 

restrained. On fraternity row, I am 
"Mr. Pickles." I have no idea what 
my children think. My house is on 
the edge of the campus, and on 
warm days, I take my little boys for 
walks. "Did you know," Ilene Baid to 
Francis, "that your daddy is crazy?" 
Later, Rene must have regretted 
her words because aftfer the next 
class she gave me ajar of her 
chocolate-chip cookies for Francis. 
Such things occur, I think, because 
I look younger than I am. My wife 
Vicki frequently tellslme I should 
put a stop to such familiarity . 
Unfortunately I don't! know how to 
stop the students without appearing 
silly or pompous. Besides I am not 
the first person to suffer good- 
natured but perhaps indecorous 
familiarity. Whenever I become 
disturbed by it, I think of Sewanee 
and Willie Cocke. Poor Professor 
Cocke. To generations of students, 
even me, he will always be Willie. 
Thinking of Willie, [ grow tolerant, 
and when a student sees me 
running and says, "Oh. professor, 
you are so cute," I say "thank you" 
and run just a little harder . 
This past fall I missed my 
twentieth reunion. School was 
under way at the ti^ne, and I was 
saving money for a new car. My old 
one was twelve yeafs old and had 
broken down twice on the highway. 
Still, I would have enjoyed 
attending. What kinds of men, I 
wondered, had those boys of 
Sewanee become. What did they 
think about? I wanted to hear about 
their families and gardens. Not 
their careers — their grand successes 
or failures — but their ordinary 
moments. Do they, I wonder even 
now, wake up every night like me, 
go into their children's bedrooms, 
and looking down at them amid the 

balls and stuffed animals, stand 
silent, filled with love and fear. Are 
those Sewanee men frightened like 
me, not of the unknown that lies 
ahead of them, but of the gathered 
darkness that stretches before their 
children? Of course, if I had 
attended the reunion, I would not 
have asked such a question. Instead 
I would have fallen into the easy 
pose of an eccentric and other- 
worldly college professor, and my 
classmates would have appeared as 
hearty businessmen and crisp 
professionals. And that, too, would 
have been all right. 

On a shelf in my study is a pile of 
old letters written by relatives of 
mine. Many were written during 
the Civil War, and in one, a letter 
to his sister, Mo) lie, in Franklin, 
Tennessee, Innis Brown described a 
spell of sentry duty. "I had a trial of 
standing guard last Wednesday 
night," he began, "but as it 
happened, I had a good night for the 
business. There was but one man 
came to my post, and I halted him, 
and asked him for the countersign. 
Then he put his hand in his pocket 
and drew out a bottle. I touched it 
slightly and told him to pass on." 
Twenty years ago Sewanee passed 
out of my life. Yet like the drink 
Cousin Innis took, Sewanee touched 
me, and sometimes on bleak days 
when I seem alone on my kind of 
sentry duty, reflections about 
Sewanee and the people I knew 
there return to warm and cheer me.

The Sewanee 
Review and the 

by George Core 

Economy is the word that will take us farthest in charting the 
anatomy of any publishing enterprise. That is especially true of 
the literary quarterly at the end of a century in which the 
quarterly has probably been the most important form of periodical so far 
as literature proper is concerned. Economy rings with the clear hard 
sound of commerce, but it embodies a larger suggestiveness within its 
metaphorical aura. Nothing is more costly than literature, nothing so 
easily corrupted by purely commercial considerations. 

I insist upon the phrase literary quarterly, not little magazine, which 
is another kind of undertaking and another breed of cat. The literary 
quarterly, or critical review, publishes fiction and poetry in addition to 
criticism; the criticism appears as essays (formal and informal), essay- 
reviews, chronicles on new fiction and poetry (and drama in many 
quarterlies), and book reviews. The fiction and poetry in some ways 
exemplify, complement, and fortify the given quarterly's critical 
commitment. Criticism, including book reviews, tends to occupy about 
two-thirds of the quarterly's space; sometimes it extends to social, 
political, and cultural criticism in such general magazines as the 
American Scholar. The editor of any quarterly worth his salt has a wide 
range of books reviewed promptly and thoroughly. In contrast the editor 
of the little magazine chiefly publishes fiction and poetry, encouraging 
experiment and innovation. The confusion between the literary 
quarterly and the little magazine is typical of the many confusions in 
publishing today, in and out of the academy. 

The quarterly is often academically based, but one of the best, the 
Hudson Review (1948) is not; nor is the most famous, the Paris Review 
(1953), now distributed by Doubleday. 

Virtually all quarterlies lose money, and the university, itself a 
money-losing (but tax-exempt) institution, can naturally and properly 
Bponsor a literary quarterly and more than one scholarly journal. The 
university also often gets good value for its money in supporting a press 
as well as periodicals (and some presses have periodicals departments). 
Generally speaking, if the university provides only personnel (salaries 
and fringe-benefits) and office and warehouse space, its support can be 
considered reasonable. That is one kind of economics — the economics of 
what today is grandly called cash flow. 

The principal income of the quarterly will be derived from 
subscriptions; the other sources are of less significance and are less 
dependable — advertising, permissions fees, contributions and grants, 
royalties for reprints, etc. Hence the shrewdly practical editor will hire 
a good business manager, and they both will stress subscription 
fulfillment and will promote their magazine at every reasonable 
opportunity with as much money as possible. This principle is 
understood well by the editors of two new quarterlies— the Kenyan 
Review (new series) and the New England Review. The best subscribers 
are libraries; the best customers, agencies. The quarterly must also 
secure as many individual subscribers as it can. 

All of this, like the other jobs involved with editing and publishing a 
magazine, is unheroic and unromantic. Ford Madox Ford once said to 
Allen Tate that he raised hogs for the romance involved; editing a 
magazine is as romantic as sluicing out a hog pen, and bringing a given 
issue into existence is less romantic than helping an old bow deliver her 
farrow. The work is demanding: day after day the staff of a quarterly is 
taxed by the contingent and the mundane. A subscription agency in 
India, not having paid its bill for several libraries, sweetly inquires in 
broken English about unreceived copies; a contributor (whose wife is a 
subscriber) moves three times in one year, twice not sending forwarding 
addresses (later he complains about missing issues; still later his wife 
Bends the wrong forwarding address); various would-be writers send 
pointless inquiries about editorial advice, style sheets, and free copies; 
the star boarders at several federal penitentiaries request 
complimentary subscriptions; various authors urgently cajole the editor 
to have their books— often published by small presses and vanity 
houses — reviewed; a contributor or would-be contributor asks for a 

report to a tenure committee or for a letter of recommendation, then 
brightly asks for several more letters. 

The real work — the editing of a given issue (including the copy editing 
and proofreading), the evaluation of submissions (solicited and 
unsolicited), the consideration of new books and possible reviewers for 
those books, the fulfillment of subscriptions and of orders for back 
numbers, the managing of the budget, the promotion of the individual 
issue and of the magazine as an enterprise — is often scanted when the 
staff is involved in such diversions, and just as often the members of the 
staff fall behind in one department while drawing abreast in another. 

The economics of the operation at the Sewanee Review also constantly 
involves considerations of space and scheduling. Scheduling here is a 
matter of great concern since most issues have a special focus. 

For the small college, such as Kenyon College or the University of the | 
South, the quarterly is an important means of advertising and public 
relations. The trustees at Kenyon obviously realized this fact in 
agreeing to underwrite the publication of the new series of the Kenyon 
Review. The principle has always been keenly understood at the 
University of the South as the subsidy to the Sewanee Review has 
steadily grown over the past forty years. At the same time the quarterly 
at a small college may become a rival intellectual center which 
threatens the faculty. In such circumstances the first series of the 
Kenyon Review was scrapped by the college's president and trustees. 

The editor of the literary quarterly is perhaps most depressed about 
the exigencies of his job when he contemplates the harshest aspects of 
the word economy. It embraces not only postage and printing costs, 
revenues and subsidies, entertainment and travel, honoraria and 
salaries, the opening vista and the bottom line, but also the number of 
pages in a given issue and what will occupy those pages — paid 
advertisements and exchange advertisements, notices and contributors' 
notes, reviews short and long, poetry, fiction, essays. Ultimately the 
very life of the magazine depends upon not only the expense of blood, 
sweat, toil, and tears but also the actual cost in money. 

The editor of a quarterly must be prepared for little but silence from 
his readers: contumely is only rarer than praise and enthusiasm, 
which are in short supply. From the literature departments of his 
university the editor will hear next to nothing; from the administration, 
even less. The editor and his staff must have a strong sense of identity, 
a strong sense of their audience. The editor's best advice comes from his 
advisory editors and from a few of his regular contributors. It is little 
wonder that the editors of dying magazines often thrash around 
fruitlessly in their efforts to redefine their periodicals and find new 
readers. The editor, whether his magazine is battening or not, is 
frequently — in the memorable words of Robert Penn Warren — alone 
with the alone. 

The editor must be an alchemist who conjures with a small segment of 
the highly literate reading public, his authors, the literary marketplace 
(which embraces trade and academic publishing houses as well as other 
quarterlies), and the academy itself. He and his contributors together 
with a handful of his readers are members of the polity of letters: they 
are engaged in the singular fiction that such a community exists— that 
the third estate is not limited to journalism of the workaday variety - 
This polity — and this fiction— are created and nurtured by the idea of 
the man of letters. The good editor is often a man of letters who enrolls 
his contributors in this community and who persuades them of its 
existence (or helps sustain their faith in it). He initiates them into its 
mysteries even though he often wonders whether the community of 
letters exists — and if it does, whether that existence is necessary and 
important. For these and other reasons the great literary editors have 
been autocrats if not dictators who have pursued lonely careers. 
Consider Ford Madox Ford, A. R. Orage, T. S. Eliot, and Edgell 
Rickword; H. L. Mencken, Katharine S. White, Cleanth Brooks and 
Robert Penn Warren, John Crowe Ransom, Malcolm Cowley, Philip 
Rahv, and Charlotte Kohler. 

The good editor mediates not only between the writing and the 
reading public but within the various constituencies of the polity of 
letters— scholars of historical persuasion, philologists, antiquarians, 
collectors, designers, bookmen, and various others in the publishing 
trade as well as poets, fictionists, and critics. The editor of the 
academically based quarterly will find this a taxing job: not for nothing 
has the academy been called an ivory tower: its members are often 
snobs whose knowledge of books is comically limited. They know 
nothing of typography and layout, of printing technology, of promotion 
and distribution, of the literary marketplace at any given time 
(including the present), of the expertise that the proprietor of a rare- 
book shop or a private collector might have: their knowledge is often 
restricted to what one can easily find about books in a shop or a library. 
Their ignorance and indifference to the subtleties of publishing create 
barriers that are far stouter than, say, the biases of scholars and critics 
toward one another. For these and other reasons I occasionally call upon 
a philologist to review books on language and usage, a bookman to 
review studies of general interest that concern typography and design a 
publisher to consider a biography or memoir of a man in the trade, and 
so on The polity of letters and the publishing community have much in 
common, and there is a far greater sense of shared purpose among these 
worlds than there is within the academic profession. The person who 

can mediate most effectively between and among these spheres is the 
literary agent. 

Such are some of the implications of R. P. Blackmur's dictum: 
"Without the profession of writing behind him the individual writer is 
reduced to small arms; without society behind it, the profession is 
impotent and bound to betray itself. A deep collaboration is necessary, a 
collaboration in which the forces are autonomous and may never 
consciously co-operate, but which is marked by the unity they make 
together and by the culture which the individual, by the act of his 
convicted imagination, brings to light." 

The literary quarterly's secret, as Henry James might have put it, is 
that, unlike the scholarly journal or the little magazine, it at once 
makes literary history and evaluates it. It makes literary history by 
publishing poetry and short fiction — and, to a lesser extent, by its 
criticism. At the Sewanee Review the critical coverage has always been 
broad, with considerable space devoted to British and American 
literature since 1500. 1 have made it a policy not to publish critical 
essays on contemporary writers, unless those writers seem to be of 
indisputably major stature— e.g. a Eudora Welty or a Patrick White. 
Even so contemporary literature demands an inordinate share of space 
when one takes into account the fiction, poetry, and the chronicles 
devoted to reviewing new fiction and poetry. You can be alive to the 

Four former editors of the Sewanee Review, from left, Allen Tate, 
Andrew Lytle, William Ralston, and Monroe Spears. 


The Sewanee Review's critical program, like that of its leading 
rivals in the U.S.— the Southern Review, the Virginia Quarterly, 
and the Hudson Review— tends to be retrospective, with the 
emphasis on modernism. Now that modernism as a literary movement 
is over and most of its great and minor practitioners are dead, such an 
emphasis lacks the sense of resourceful experimental ism and bold 
pioneering that was associated with modernism throughout much of its 
history, particularly with the magazines that published it — from the 
English Review, Poetry, Hound and Horn through the first serieB of the 
Southern and Kenyan reviews. But the age is predominantly critical, 
and criticism, like the literature upon which it inevitably feeds, must be 
perpetually written anew. The critical consensus of one age is the 
critical anathema of another, just as the strategy and tactics of one 
critical school often cause another contemporary school to bristle. We 
have seen how the rise of modernism necessitated a subtle — perhaps 
oversubtle — criticism which took the forms of the New Humanism, the 
New Criticism, neo-Aristotelianism, archetypal or myth criticism, and 
so forth. Postmodernism has thus far produced a criticism, structuralism 
and its related forms, which seeks not so much to interpret and 
undergird literature as to rival it. The rivalry often aims at 
displacement, not mere parity. 

Unlike Randall Jarrell, himself a better critic than poet, I would not 
argue that criticism is inherently wrong or that any "creative" writer 
has been hurt by attempting criticism. The more spectacular failures 
occur when the good critic turns out to be an embarrassingly inept 
fictionist or poet, and some of my most painful moments at the Sewanee 
Review have come when I received poetry from a critic who had been 

invited to send an essay. In any case, like it or not, we are stuck in an 
age that is predominantly critical. 

The history of the Sewanee Review falls into two phases. For the 
first half-century (1892-1942) the magazine was a quarterly of 
general culture devoted to the humanities; much space was given 
to philosophy, religion, history, and politics. The circle of contributors 
was wide, with many of them being distinguished; but too much of the 
magazine was written by local faculty. The Sewanee Review in that time 
resembled the South Atlantic Quarterly, Virginia Quarterly, the Yale 
Review, and the American Scholar. 

In 1942 W. S. Knickerbocker, the magazine's first full-time editor, 
suffered a nervous breakdown. (His servitude had begun in 1926.) 
Andrew Lytle, though his title was managing editor, became the editor 
in fact; and he prepared the way for the radical changes which occurred 
under Allen Tate's brief but profoundly important tenure (1944-1946). 
Lytle and Tate collaborated for nearly two years before Tate became 
editor, with Tate becoming an unusually active advisory editor. When 
Tate was appointed in mid-1944 he had the magazine redesigned by P. 
J. Conkwright, one of the best designers in the USA during the past 
half-century; he more than tripled the paid circulation and had the 
magazine placed in eastern bookstores like Brentano's; and he 
inaugurated the essential practice of paying contributors for their work. 
At the same time he instituted a critical program for the Sewanee 
Review which extended that of the first series of the Southern Review 
(1935-1942) and complemented the ongoing program of Ransom's 
Kenyon Review (1939). The Sewanee Review today has much in common 
with the quarterly that Tate, John E. Palmer (1946-1952), Monroe K. 
Spears (1952-1961), and Andrew Lytle (1961-1973) edited. Continuity is 
far more evident than change. 

In instituting the practices that he had described and prescribed in 
"The Function of the Critical Quarterly" (1936), Tate stamped the 
Sewanee Review with its distinctive modern character. 

Although the criticism in the Sewanee Review since 1944 has been 
chiefly New Critical in origin and disposition, it has by no means been 
limited to that "school" — any more than the old Southern Review or 
Kenyon Review was. There has been free but competitive trade among 
critics and criticism in the Sewanee Review, and no trade barriers have 
been erected. Some of the critics who have been regular contributors 
during my editorship (since 1974) include James M. Cox, Denis 
Donoghue, Samuel Hynes, L. C. Knights, B. L. Reid, William Walsh, 
Austin Warren, George Watson, George Woodcock, and Theodore 
Ziolkowski — among whom there is a considerable disparity of critical 
opinion and method. No umbrella or blanket will cover these critics. 
What they share is a catholic taste in literature and a willingness to be 
pluralistic in responding to that literature. All of them, just as the New 
Critics, would inveigh against a dry formalism. 

No critical wars have been waged during the past ten years, but there 
has been a regular effort to counter' the growing influence of 
structuralism. This campaign doesn't even faintly resemble, for 
instance, the battles between the Chicago Aristotelians and the New 
Critics that were waged here, in the Kenyon Review, and elsewhere in 
the 1930s and 40s. 

In the recent past — since the early or mid-1970s — the definition of 
what literature constitutes has broadened considerably. On the whole 
this has been a salutary development. I do not share the current 
enthusiasm for popular culture and interdisciplinary studies, being 
inclined to think that the best literature must be seen as literature and 
not in terms of other forms such as film. On the other hand I believe 
that it is a good sign that such genres as autobiography, biography, 
travel narrative, and reportage are beginning to be looked at in their 
own right — which is to say that Literature is no longer being confined to 
fiction, drama, poetry, and criticism but now embraces a wider and more 
diverse range of genres and modes. 

The shrinking of the literary intelligence, especially in fiction and 
poetry, has been marked and acute in the 1960s and 70s. I would 
agree with Lewis P. Simpson, one of the most able critics of the 
past decade, that "the falling off from the literary establishment — 
which has included the disavowal of Eliot and Hemingway, though not 
so much of Joyce and Faulkner— has left a vacuum." The vacuum of 
which Professor Simpson speaks is qualitative in nature, not 
quantitative: there are more little magazines, more writers, more 
published work than ever. The poet or fictioniBt or critic who cannot get 
his work published these days either has no talent whatever or is 
ignorant of the publishing establishment. In the flood of an 
unprecedented and endlessly rising tide of publications — over 40,000 
new books per year in the U.S. alone — one sees markedly fewer writers 
of major stature than in the period between the world wars. 

During such a time, when the impulse that Mr. Simpson calls literary 
origination is at a low ebb and when the publishing establishment 
(including an incredible array of small presses and little magazines) is 
madly overproductive, the editor of the literary quarterly may 
experience the natural impulse to redefine his magazine or to quit 
altogether. He may be nearly overwhelmed with the sense of what Tate 
calls the "modern divorce of action from intelligence." Only his sense of 

(continued on next page)

(continued from previous page) 

being a part of the historical order of letters will now save him. He must 
recognize at the same time that the expansion or contraction of first- 
rate literature at any given time depends upon the ratio of the social 
and creative pressures of the moment and that he can do little or 
nothing to alter either or to. bring the two into productive balance. He 
can respond to each pressure or both without allowing his magazine to 
lose its definition, focus, and momentum. The editor, as Tate has said, 
"owes his first duty to his critical principles, his sense of the moral and 
intellectual order upon which society ought to rest, whether or not 
society at the moment has an interest in such an order." 

The critical performance from the editor's standpoint does not 
invariably or inevitably lie in the province of the essay and the review. 
Good fiction and poetry stand as implicit criticism of inferior creative 
work. The creative work usually has the most interest for the general 
reader, who is a member of that increasingly threatened and constantly 
diminishing group of cultivated laymen that is frequently invoked but 
seldom perceived. 

Any quarterly is continually threatened by editorial and authorial 
behavior that runs the gamut from self-parody to self-destruction. The 
editor must ensure that his circle of contributors does not become too 
narrow, dogmatic, self-regarding. The family of a quarterly, like any 
other family, can run to seed — to nepotism, incest, decadence, and 

The economy of the quarterly — I remount the hobbyhorse of my 
theme — then depends editorially not only upon work which involves the 
budgeting of money, time, and effort but upon a complicated juggling 
act which concerns the regular and occasional contributors to the 
magazine. The success of the act depends upon the editor's keeping the 
writing of his regulars and irregulars in a smooth and continuous flow. 
He must remember that nearly any reader is going to be bored by the 
repetition of too many of the same names in issue after issue. He 
therefore not only solicits material from talent new to his pages but is 
alert for fresh talent. His ultimate defense, aside from outright 
rejection, is tough-minded, even ruthless, copyediting. 

In mid-April of 1851 Herman Melville wrote Nathaniel Hawthorne a 
remarkable letter in which he praised Hawthorne for his visible truth — 
"the apprehension of the absolute condition of present things as they 
strike the eye of the man who fears them not, though they do their 
worst to him." For many years the word visible was misread as usable. 
The editor of the literary quarterly seeks to give the best authors a 
forum where their work will be both usable and visible. Both editors 
and authors should be engaged in a common pursuit, and they must be 
keenly aware of the costs of earning a place in the profession of letters. 
If the costs of discharging one's responsibilities to literature are great, 
so too are the costs of life itself. 

George Core, who has been editor of the Sewanee Review since 1973, 
often writes for the national press, including the Washington Post Book 
World and the Wall Street Journal. 

Second Lytle Reissue 
Announced in New York 

by Don Keck DuPree, C'73 

February 27, 1984, Winter 
Garden Theatre, CATS. That it 
struck me that I was accompanying 
Sewanee's Old Deuteronomy on this 
adventure in Gotham should strike 
no one who knows Andrew Lytle as 
any great surprise. Lytle appears to 
many of us in the conjurer's guise, 
turning the base to the fine. His 
stories and conversation take the 
words we debase daily and make 
them new — refined by his own 
panoramic point of view. Lytle is 
himself the Hovering Bard, 
described in the Foreword of 
Stories. "The bard, by hovering 
above the action, to see it all, 
collects the segments. In the end, in 
the way he fits the parts together, 
the one story will finally get told." 

Hearing him read "Jericho, 
Jericho, Jericho" to the New York 
Club, the fit of the pieces was 
plainer than ever in the rhythms of 
the spoken story. For the agrarian, 
season and ripeness are all. Life on 
the land is a steady round, and 

who "received the mantle of grace 
when the Methodists held their 
great revival." Bomar and Boy, 
each carries a segment of the one 
story. Time's inscrutability presses, 
and the boy is arrested, mid- 
gesture, by the eyes of his uncle: 
"They were the eyes in the 
mahogany frame." Possibility 
dances between Joshua who made 
time "swing suspended" and the 
inevitability of manhood proceeding 
with its "mathematical exactitude." 
Lytle's characters contemplate the 
mysterious promise of turkey eggs 
incubating under a warm bed; they 
play out the inexorable 
consummatum est of action and 
thought by which "the flesh and 
spirit are parted." 

"Amen," So Be It, Alchemy's 
narrator murmurs or thinks he 
murmurs. "Most men are hastening 
to meet some disaster." When they 

dying Kate McCowan faces her own 
very human place in the progress 
from drilling to harvest. She 
regards her heir, her grandson: 
"How long, she wondered, would his 
spirit hold up under the trials of 
planting, of cultivating, and of the 
gathering time, year in and year 
out — how would his spirit hold up 
before so many springs and so many 
autumns." Above her, in the great 
testered deathbed, mahogany 
grapes tumble from the carved 
headboard. "How much longer 
would these never-picked grapes 
hang above her head?" 

The tantalizing possibility of the 
never-plucked grapes is our frail 
drive to suspend time, efface 
change — a recurring motif in these 
stories. Time frozen can be the eyes 
of a family portrait. The boy, 
protagonist of "The Mahogany 
Frame," knows his ancestor 
Menelaus as "the one that hangs to 
the right of the mantle in the living 
room." His Uncle Bomar knows the 
fabled Laus as a great "rounder"

instead of borrow; that 1b, you make 
it your own. At this moment you 
pass from apprenticeship to 
mastery." (the Foreword)

become actors, and I join Old 
Deuteronomy for a drink before bed, 
Next day, we'd be literary, dining 
with those who might note the 
renascence to print of this conjurer 
from Sewanee. Next day, Ralph 
Ellison, southerner, author of 
Invisible Man, would rise solemnly 
at table and provide the mot juste 
for this occasion. Looking our friend 
Andrew Lytle in the eye, Ellison 
would say: "Andrew, you're still a 
great rascal; I take hope from that." 
Conjurer, rascal, alchemist. The 
hope is sure— reassurance of stories 
well told, craft masterfully 
exercised — the possibility of seeing 
ourselves reflected by words turned 

Andrew Lytle fixes the attention of his audience with anecdotes and a 
writer's wisdom during a New York dinner held in his honor earlier this 
year. Seated from left: are Don DuPree, C'73, of Sewanee; the Rev. Robert

meet a thing of "radiance, in white 
robes, and most beautiful," there is 
"in attendance a companion clad in 
very different guise." They, we, 
reach out hands to clasp desires; 
that other — the dark thing— steps 
forth to receive us. The final image 
Lytle took from an old soldier's 
memoirs. "There are only two ways

The University of the South 

Sewanee, Tennessee 37375 

Wisdom Validated 
by Faith 

The following address was delivered by John V. Reishman, associate 
professor of English, during the meeting in May of the University's Board 
of Trustees. 

by John V. Reishman 

Let me begin by saying, as a member of this faculty, how grateful I 
am to you for your service on our governing board, and for your 
efforts on behalf of our mutual endeavor in this University. Unlike 
some colleges and universities which exist in the context of large 
communities, Sewanee is all by itself in the woods, and this isolation is 
a reminder to us of our critical need for lines of communication and 
support to the great world beyond the domain, from which most of you 
have come. Without you our rather romantic isolation here would 
become eccentric and dangerous, and ultimately impossible. So, many 
thanks for the crucial and sustaining support that you provide. 

This morning it is my pleasure to talk to you about the work of this 
college: about education in the liberal arts and about how this kind of 
education is imparted in Sewanee. 

Before saying anything at all about the great educational tradition in 
which this institution exists I would like to remind you of certain 
features of our current culture that I think help to explain why such a 
quixotic project, as this University may seem to be from certain 
perspectives, can continue to generate enthusiasm from students, 
faculty, and benefactors. T. S. Eliot told us early in the twentieth 
century that the modern world is a Wasteland, and that image has been 
emphatically reiterated by countless other modern commentators since 
Eliot first advanced it in 1922. The most convincing proof that his image 
is accurate is to be found in the pavilion area of Myrtle Beach during 
the high season on The Grand Strand. The pathos of modernity has 
never been more vividly represented for me than watching my fellow 
Americans in wet bathing suits and sloganed T-shirts at that 
particularly meretricious spot, pursuing life, liberty, and happiness in 
the atmosphere of a third-rate carnival. Even the grandeur of the sea is 
obliterated by the spectacle of Americans on summer vacation. 

Since it is only May and Myrtle Beach and its pavilion are far away, I 
would attempt to persuade you of the accuracy of T. S. Eliot's 
observations by reminding you of what unfortunately seems to be the 
most memorable rhetorical moment in the current presidential 
campaign. All three major candidates for the Democratic Party's 
nomination for our nation's highest office have availed themselves of 
what seems to be a question of universal significance: "Where's the 
beef?" The phrase is taken, of course, from the TV commercial for 
Wendy's, but it serves as a reminder not only of the aesthetic and 
culinary squalor generated by our national enthusiasm for fast food, but 
of the impoverishment of our rhetorical tradition which has only 
Madison Avenue to turn to when a memorable phrase is required. We've 
come a long way from the Gettysburg Address, and from the rhetorical 
tropes of Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy. 

I hope that I won't seem lugubrious when I suggest that the inquiry 
about the whereabouts of beef in a campaign for our nation's highest 
office is a recent indication that the image of Wasteland still applies 
even more emphatically than it once did to the modern landscape. 

In a sense, all that we are engaged in on this campus is to provide 
ourselves and our students with questions, answers, and a frame of 
reference that liberate us from the gross confinement and preoccupation 
implied by the phrase from the TV commercial, which our national 
leaders have reiterated in their campaign. 

In pursuing wisdom through the liberal arts we in Sewanee are trying 
to realize a level of freedom which is not available in the shallow 
recesses of pop-culture from which the Wendy's slogan is derived. In 
the culture of ancient Greece, one of the models from which modern 
liberal education is derived, certain pursuits were regarded as 
appropriate for those who were free, i.e. for those who were not slaves. 
These activities included athletics, the worship of the gods, and the 
pursuit of wisdom or philosophy. These same endeavors are crucial in 
the life of all traditional universities of which Sewanee is one. 

Engaging in these liberal activities in leisure made free men more 
free, in the Greek scheme of things. These liberating endeavors allowed 
those who engaged in them to become moi 

themselves and the universe than if they were totally committed to the 
immediate demands of their physical environment, to supplying 
physical needs of food, clothing, and shelter. Such details were assumed 
to be limiting and confining and were relegated to slaves. Intellectual 
and spiritual culture was pursued by those who were legally free and 
wanted to achieve more significant levels of freedom in their leisure. 
Aristotle makes it clear in The Politics that these liberal endeavors and 
their effect upon human nature were so highly prized that even the 
acknowledged evil of slavery could be tolerated, so that the community 
as a whole might benefit from the vision of those who were free. 

But the irony of the Industrial World is that, though slavery has been 
eliminated and we have made machines to perform many of the tasks 
once assigned to slaves, we have not responded to the possibilities of 
leisure in order to make ourselves free, as the privileged segment of 
Greek society once did. The question about beef in the Wendy's ad 
suggests that as a nation we are preoccupied with the realm once 
assigned to slaves. The quest for beef is a metaphor for a preoccupation 
with the material needs associated with our physical being, and even 
our leisure is devoted to roaming through shopping malls where 
consumption precludes contemplation or the development of vision. 

At Sewanee we are at war with the rabid preoccupation with the 
material world that is the hallmark of modern life. Each day in our 
classrooms we are asking our students to look through the various 
lenses of our academic disciplines beyond the purely practical world in 
the hope that, like the ancient free men of Athens, they will encounter a 
level of beauty and intricacy that will enrich their lives, make them 
better, and also allow them access to the more profound dimensions of 
human experience as long as they live. 

As an English teacher, I've always been annoyed at people with 
whom one sits on airplanes who race through the New Yorker 
stopping only at the cartoons and the whiskey ads. I should like 
to think that our English majors in this college would prefer the text of 
the magazine and that their capacity to move through their intellectual 
training into the vast realms of literary experience would enrich not 
only the time they spend on airplanes, but the whole edifice of their 
interior lives, as they move through time to eternity. 

We believe here in Sewanee that the ancient and time-proven 
academic disciplines which constitute our core-curriculum can still 
make men free. All of us must take our places at some station in the 
economic order, but the Sewanee man or woman should not define his or 
her meaning exclusively in terms of that order, or in terms of the 
function which he assumes in that order. Those of us who live in the 
capitalist world are often self-congratulatory because of the more 
blatant materialism in the communist world. But whether one finds 
oneself in Moscow or Buckhead, in Scarsdale or Peking, there is a grave 
danger that in trying to gain the whole world we will suffer the loss of 
our souls — that we forget about real freedom and give ourselves over to 
various modes of production and acquisition. The liberal arts as they are 
pursued in this college are intended to awaken us all to the reality of 
our own spirits, and by allowing us to ask: "Where is the truth?", make 
the whereabouts of the beef seem less crucial. 

But in Sewanee our heritage is not rooted exclusively in Greek 
culture or in the passion of that ancient people for wisdom through the 
application of human reason to the myriad complexities generated by 
man and the world. 

The presence of our impressive chapel with its Gothic protrusions 
incongruously etched against the Middle Tennessee sky dramatically 
announces another crucial resource in our struggle to understand 
ourselves and the world in terms other than those in phrases generated 
by Madison Avenue to celebrate "fast food." 

Sometimes I like to imagine what archeologists in the next 
millennium will conclude when they root through vast levels of petrified 
kudzu to discover the towers of All Saints' Chapel (and the Volkswagen 
Beetle immortalized in the lower left-hand corner of one of our stained- 
glass windows). I would have them know that the Chapel is a sign that 
Sewanee was rooted in a catholic and apostolic Church which has, since 
its founder identified himself with Truth, been the perennial sponsor 
and protector of organized efforts at learning. Sewanee was created by 
men who realized that human wisdom is enhanced and validated by 
religious faith. Our Anglican heritage in Sewanee provides a "quality 
control" over our enterprise reminding us all that we are not embarked 
upon a purely secular quest for helpful information or data, which 
reduce so many well-intentioned academic projects to ultimate 

I am fascinated by the current popularity of the game Trivial Pursuit, 
which I enjoy playing with my students because, unlike in tennis or 
handball, in Trivial Pursuit being old is an advantage. But finally, I 
only find it amusing because it is a parlor game. I am glad that my

professional life in this place is not involved in Trivial Pursuit or in the 
demoralizing accumulation of information without value or meaning. In 
Sewanee we are searching for a vision by which we can live, and, 
though information is crucial in the discovery of vision, it does not of 
itself suffice. The Church reminds us of an ultimate order from which 
the whole- universe is derived and challenges us to discover that order in 
the academic disciplines which address it. 

I feel fortunate that the religious tradition of the English and 
Episcopal Church has ever acknowledged the climate of freedom in 
which all genuine academic learning must be pursued. The church and 
her ministers in Sewanee recall for us that Truth has become incarnate 
in Christ and that those who seek the truth will ultimately see His face 
or at least His shadow in the process. At our altar the priests of this 
Church celebrate a world that has been redeemed and assure that the 
meaning which we strive to find through the paths of our intellectual 
speculations is really there waiting for us. In this religious tradition 
there is no attempt to impose sectarianism or to substitute 
indoctrination for education. \ 

So in Sewanee we avail ourselves of two great civilizations, the 
Hellenic and the Judeo-Christian. We search for wisdom by the 
lights of reason and faith and hope so that in the process we shall 
free ourselves from the depressing banality of modern life by the 
cultivation of what is noblest in our natures. 

This divided loyalty always comes into focus for me on\our Fall party 
weekend when our efforts to confront enduring monuments of man's 
intellect run smack into the last vestiges of the "Animal House" era. It 
is always at this very time that my students in English 201 and I are 
deeply involved in Homer's Iliad. On the Friday when party weekend 
begins, in class we come to the death of Patroclus, when the noble 
Achilles discovers in the loss of his dearest friend intimate;evidence of 
the tragic nature of human experience. The students and I stare 
together at that stark image of a noble man who has learned the worst. 
The dying leaves in the autumnal quadrangle reflect the terrible truth 
in the song of the ancient poet. Class ends, and I go to my bicycle while 
many of the students repair to the terrace of a nearby fraternity house 
and the comfort of the beer dispensed there. I ride my bicycle toward 
home feeling slightly guilty for pointing to a truth so terrible while the 
students are young and think that they will never die. Then I see them 
at the fraternity house terrace where the juke box supplies the booming 
rhythms of their generation, and rivals the tragic vision Homer has held 
up to them. But even as I watch them sway lithely to those 
quadraphonic sounds, I know that, despite "hey, hey-hey baby, I want to 
know-oh-oh, if you will be my girl," their revelries are accompanied by a 
more profound grasp of life than the buttons of their jukebox can ever 

However, in order that real culture and its values can lay claim to our 
students it is crucial that high learning make an emphatic impression 
on these children of the modern period. Here again Sewanee's, methods 
are traditional and time-tested. We believe here that real learning is 
best achieved in an intensely personal environment, and is the result of 
genuine communication between those who know and those who want to 
learn. In this University the teachers and students truly know one 
another and that simple fact about our communal existence is as crucial 
as the intellectual and religious tradition in which we operate. Learning 
here does not consist of abstractions dispensed with the same 
dehumanized precision and sterile anonymity that I associate with the 
fast-food emporia. Sewanee permits academic learning to be filtered 
through the medium of personality. In this way value is imparted to 
information, and the abstract elements of wisdom become incarnate. 

Recall your own college education and notice how its most memorable 
elements are invariably associated with the personality of the teacher 
who revealed them to you. At the half-time of our alumni Weekend 
football game I have met the most unlikely men, graduates of this 
college, who have quoted passages from Tennyson's "Mort© D'Arthur" 
for me which they learned at the feet of Abbott Cotten Martin. These 
tobacco farmers and lawyers planted bulbs under his direction in the 
ravine garden that now bears his name, and they bore the,' brunt of his 
biting irony in the classroom, but precisely because of this network of 
associations, because of their relationship with him, they (can recall 
years later the Victorian verse which he taught them. That is the 
Sewanee way. 

Our students hear us in class, but they also worship with us, play 
tennis with us, know our spouses and our children and the way we keep 
house and tend our gardens. We know them, too, know whom they date, 
when their parents get divorced, when they get in trouble with the dean 

of men, and when they organize the best Christmas tea that our campus 
has ever known. 

In Sewanee we talk an enormous amount to one another. As a young 
instructor at the University of Virginia I was asked by the dean to be 
available to the students in my office for one hour a week. In Sewanee 
the faculty is available almost every afternoon, Monday through Friday. 
But we also talk at night in the Pub, and after the movies, and at the 
scenic outdoor spots like Long's Mill and Fiery Gizzard where 
generations of Sewanee students and faculty have gathered. All of this 
makes a difference. Our motto provided by the psalmist, "Behold how 
good and pleasant it is where men dwell together in unity," describes an 
essential fact about our corporate existence and provides what I regard 
as our greatest claim to uniqueness in modern liberal arts education. 

Since nine students and four teachers first met classes here in 1868 
Sewanee has offered an intimate atmosphere for academic 
learning. In our age this atmosphere is even more precious because 
it is more rare. J. H. Newman, the great Oxford don and educational 
theorist, insisted in the Idea of a University that "a University is 
properly designated an alma mater— a mother, knowing her children 
one by one and not a factory or a foundry or a mint." The generation of 
students whom we currently serve are all, to some extent or another, 
refugees from the world of fast food, and from the anonymity which 
prevails in the shopping malls and high schools of suburbia. 

Here in Sewanee they find a more personal universe than in many 
cases they have ever known and the results, in terms of their own 
development, can be outstanding. I am proud of those of our students 
who have achieved distinction in their high schools and prep schools and 
come to us with impressive records and glorious SAT scores, but I am 
even more enthusiastic about the mediocre high school students who 
come alive in this academic atmosphere because its personal nature 
permits them to respond to the challenge of learning as they were 
unable to do in a less humane and refined setting. The first full day 
which any freshman spends on this campus concludes with a meal in the 
home of his or her academic advisor. It is only a gesture, but we hope 
that it makes a point about Sewanee education: that it is a mutual, 
communal endeavor, that no one here is on his own. 

So basically Sewanee continues to expose her children to the best that 
exists in our intellectual and spiritual tradition. We are proud that we 
have maintained that tradition carefully, that our curriculum is sound, 
and that our present students must all confront the whole spectrum of 
traditional learning which has given meaning and value to the lives of 
those who have gone before us here. We believe that the cultivation of 
the intellect is as valid a pursuit in our own age as in any, and that such 
cultivation enhances both our private and our professional lives. 

Our ancient faith which comes to us from the apostles through the 
church allows the glory of the Judeo-Christian tradition to illuminate 
our search for wisdom in this place and to impart a transcendent 
significance to all of our pursuits. Finally, we at Sewanee insist that the 
ambitious scope of our intellectual and spiritual goals and the 
threatening climate of the modern world make it imperative that our 
pilgrimage not be made in solitude. We are, therefore, deeply persuaded 
that the opportunity for friendship and genuine community on this 
Mountain is precious and crucial to the success of our endeavor. 

If we are correct about assumptions, then Sewanee is and will be a 
very important place, not only in the New South, but in the modern 
world. From this Mountain men and women of vision will move into a 
world that cries out for evaluation and interpretation, The church will 
find among our alumni enlightened defenders and benefactors who will 
provide leadership and inspiration acquired from their experience in 
this University. The professions and the world of business will profit not 
only from the intellectual preparation of Sewanee men and women, but 
from the moral cultivation which is also an inherent element of our 
tradition in this college. The world, which has forgotten so much that it 
can only ask about the whereabouts of beef, can be reminded of a rich 
and beautiful heritage by those who have come to know that heritage 

Your support and governance on the Board of Trustees are 
indications that you too appreciate this heritage and our-mission 
to keep it alive and operative in the world, with God's help. Some 
of you are alumni of this University and know already its capacity to 
make life good. Some of you are churchmen who grasp the crucial role 
that truly educated men and women can play in the destiny of the whole 
church and in her mission to the world. I hope that for all of you coming 
to Sewanee, in the springtime when the good life that we live here is 
most apparent, will be a source of encouragement and inspiration. That 
when your valuable counsel has been given and your meeting has 
adjourned you will leave satisfied that this University remains intact, 
that we know what we are doing and why we are about it. 


The Dean's Column: 


by Dean W. Brown Patterson, C'52 

During this Easter Season I have several times found myself reflecting 
on the significance of All Saints' Chapel in the life of the University of 
the South. It is, of course, a magnificent structure in which to hold 
religious services. It is cathedral-like not only in its physical proportions 
but in the quality of the services held there. It is a spacious and 
convenient place in which to hold large gatherings of the University 

The Chapel is also a repository of the University's richly storied past. 
No one can read the plaques on the walls dedicated to professors, deans, 
vice-chancellors, trustees, bishops, and others without sensing the 
unaffected piety, the humanity, and the commitments to a common 
endeavor characteristic of so many members of Sewanee's family over 
the years. The great stained-glass windows in the clerestory link the 
University to the saving events recorded in the Old and New 
Testaments and in Christian history. 

The Chapel also expresses very clearly an educational philosophy. 
Arrayed along the two Bide aisles are small windows depicting heroes of 
the arts and sciences through the ages. Here are the images of those 
who have made significant contributions to the world's store of 
knowledge in biology, chemistry, economics, geology, history, 
philosophy, physics, political science, and other disciplines. The fine arts 
are represented; so is literature. All of these subjects are seen as parts of 
a continuing investigation of God's universe. Scholarship is itself made 
a sacred calling. The intellectual endeavors which are carried on at the 
University are shown to have a unity and coherence symbolized by the 
placement of these windows in the building which stands at the center 
of the campus. 

The Chapel thus speaks eloquently of the purpose of the education 
Sewanee offers. It is not necessarily to enable graduates to achieve 
material success nor is it to equip them with immediately practical 
technical skills. It is to start them on their way to serving the common 
good. It is to begin a process by which they will gradually attain 
intellectual, moral, and spiritual maturity. It is to bring together for 
their stimulation and guidance the chief elements of our cultural 
heritage, so that they can continue to be nourished by them. 

This is an exciting time for Sewanee. The enrollment of the 
University is very healthy; applications for admission are up; faculty 
compensation has been significantly improved; new facilities are being 
provided for both the College and the School of Theology; our reputation 
as a center of liberal and humane studies is growing. I feel very 
fortunate to be here. And I am thankful that there is a vision of the 
purpose of learning enshrined in the University's central structure. 
That vision is still unfolding and provides our best hope for the future. 

Graduate Wins Fellowship 

A prestigious Department of 
Energy fellowship has been 
awarded to Susan Miller, C'84, a 
physics graduate of the College of 
Arts and Sciences. 

With a full scholarship and 
$12,000 annual stipend, Susan will 
pursue advanced degrees in health 
physics at Georgia Tech beginning 
in September. 

She faced stiff competition in the 
southeast, where only four 
fellowships were awarded. The 
fellowships were also available for 
nuclear engineering and nuclear 
science studies. 

In addition to graduate work, the 
program provides practicum periods 
for work at major research centers. 
When she completes the master's 

program (or the Ph.D., which will 
also be financed by the fellowship) 
she may join the Department of 
Energy or seek employment in the 
private sector. 

Susan said the combination of 
events leading to her degree in 
physics from Sewanee, her interest 
in health physics, her receipt of the 
fellowship, and the chance to study~ 
at Georgia Tech in her home town 
of Atlanta have been amazingly 
fortunate and exciting. 

At Sewanee she has been active 
on the Christian Social Relations 
Board, and involved in the Big 
Sister program and Senior Citizens 
visitation. She has been an 
assistant proctor and active in a 
variety of social organizations.

Colloquiuni Scholars 
and the Roots of Drama 

Aided by its Gothic architecture 
and stained glass, Sewanee takes 
special delight in mixing images, 
ancient and modern, medieval and 
twentieth century. So it was at this 
year's Sewanee Mediaeval 
Colloquium April 13-14 at which 
scholars explored the roots of 
modern drama found in the 
literature of Medieval Europe. 

Convocation Hall, the 
University's marvelous salute to 
Victorian-Gothic, was the site of 
lectures, plays, and discussions. 

The colloquium's theme was 
Mundus Tkeatri: Theatrum Mundi 
(World of the Theatre: Theatre of 
the World), which plays upon the 
ancient notion that the world is a 
stage and the stage is an imitation 
of life and of people acting out their 
roles in the world. 

The two principal speakers, both 
internationally renowned scholars, 
were O. B. Hardison, Jr., professor 
of English at Georgetown 
University and director of the 
Folger Shakespeare Theatre, and 
Glynn W. G. Wickham, professor 
emeritus of drama at the University 
of Bristol, England. Approximately 
twenty other scholars participated 
in the colloquium by giving papers, 
responding formally to those 
papers, or chairing sessions. 

Edward B. King, Sewanee's 
associate professor of history and 
colloquium director, said a special 
dimension was added to this year's 
gathering by the dramatic 
presentation of Medieval Tales by 
the Purple Masque. Consisting 
primarily of fabliaux, tales in verse, 
these short dramatic pieces are by 
turns bawdy, uproarious, sardonic, 
fanciful, poignant, and wise. They 
were directed by David Landon, 
associate professor of French and 
theatre, and were performed on a 
specially constructed stage in 
Convocation Hall. 

Jacqueline Schaefer, professor of 
French and comparative literature 
and a colloquium committee 
member, said that the colloquium 
speakers recognize that dramatic 
elements exist in much of narrative 
medieval literature. 

"Texts in verse, for instance, were 
meant to be sung and even mimed," 
she said. "Some narratives even 
involve a change of voice, and in 
some cases the medieval reader or 
performer would have had to 
change character as he read. 

"In medieval times, literary forms 
tended to mingle, and in a sense 
modernism has returned to this 
attitude of not setting rigid 
divisions between literary genres." 

The colloquium also took special 
notice of the civic function of the 
theatre, which was especially 
significant in the late Middle Ages 
and continues to exercise its 
influence today. 

C. Clifford Flanigan of the 
University of Indiana spoke on this 
civic role of theatre. He views the 
medieval play as ritual, melding 
the familiar Christian myth and the 
contemporary life. Medieval plays 
grew out of the church liturgy to 
demonstrate the values of the 

"They define, for example, how 
individuals should react to each 
other, what economic norms should 
prevail, and the relationship 
between the sexes and various 
social classes," Flanigan wrote. 
'The very act of watching and 
participating in these plays, 
especially in relatively small 
communities, did, in part, bring 
about the imagined social unity to 
which the plays point." 

By bringing together visiting 
medieval scholars, the Sewanee 
Mediaeval Colloquium is 
contributing to the renewed interest 
in medieval theatre. 

Music Award 

Michael Winslett, C'86, of 
Greensboro, Alabama, is the 1984 
winner of the annual Carl Scheibe 
Scholarship, sponsored by the 
Chattanooga Chapter of the 
American Guild of Organists. 

Winslett competed against music 
students from other colleges and 
universities in Tennessee. His 
scholarship will be used to further 
his organ study at Sewanee. 

New Approach 
in Minority Affairs 

by Latham W. Davis 

The recent record of success by 
Sewanee's minority student 
program has been very encouraging 
to many faculty members and 
friends of Sewanee. For two decades 
racial desegregation has been a 
policy as well as a reality at 
Sewanee. However, the numbers of 
black students had been very small, 
and over time the low numbers had 
tended to provoke questions about 
the real intentions of the 

It became obvious to various 
members of the faculty and to 
students and prospective students 
that the virtual non-existence of 
blacks, or minority students of any 
sort, was creating a certain 
imbalance in the education that, 
Sewanee was offering. The mission 
of the University was in question to 
an extent because the scarcity of 
minority students suggested that 
many academically qualified 
students would not be welcome at 
the University of the South. 

In 1979 the newly-formed 
Minority Affairs Committee in the 
College issued a report making 
several recommendations to the 
dean and to the administration as a 
whole. Two basic convictions 
underlay this report: that it is 
morally incumbent upon the 
University to serve all ethnic 
segments of its geographic area and 
that an essential feature of a strong 
liberal arts education is interaction 
among students representing the 
various cultural communities of our 

One of the recommendations of 
this report was that the University 
employ a full-time staff member to 
recruit and advise minority 
students. It was a key 
recommendation, for the Minority 
Affairs Program was really 
launched in 1981 when the 
committee persuaded an alumnus, 
Eric Benjamin, then a legal aid 
attorney in Atlanta, to return to his 
alma mater and take the new 

Not only was Mr. Benjamin a 
Sewanee graduate with a 
commendable record in professional 
life, but he was a black whose 
experience at Sewanee had 
demonstrated that minority 
students could indeed prosper and 
distinguish themselves in Walsh 
and Woods. 

In 1972 the number of minority 
students had reached a high mark 
of sixteen, but by 1981 the number 
had dwindled to two. In contrast the 
results of the new commitment to 
minority-student enrollment and 
the work of Eric Benjamin have 
been impressive. - 

ThiB past academic year, there 
were twenty-eight minority 
students in the College. Of these, 
three are members of the Wilkins 
Scholar program, one is a member 
of the Discipline Committee, two 
are proctors, and one an assistant 

proctor. The number of students in 
leadership positions is expected to 
increase since twenty-eight 
minority students are freshmen and 
sophomores, and the retention rate 
has been a remarkable 100 percent 
since Mr. Benjamin became 
program director. 

One of Benjamin's maxims, 
learned from his own student days, 
is: "Participate, be involved in 
campus life." The rule is a valuable 
one for any student, and it pertains 
particularly well to Sewanee, which 
has much to offer to those who seek 
it. Therefore, following his counsel, 
minority students have become 
involved in several varsity sports, 
the choir, student government, 
administrative committees, and a 
variety of less formal activities. 

"My Sewanee education has given 
me a certain intellectual freedom 
that I find invaluable," Mr. 
Benjamin said. "My thirst for 
knowledge has not diminished. 
That is what education should do." 

Benjamin arrived at Sewanee 
from the Marist School in Atlanta 
to join the class of 1973. The first 
black students at Sewanee were 
trail-blazers, he said, and he 
thought they had an easier time 
than those to follow. 

Benjamin had offers of athletic 
scholarships from several colleges. 
Sewanee was one of the few with 
solely an academic interest. Though 
he had not heard of the University 
of the South, a visit from the 
president of the Student Assembly 
and the warmth of the campus and 
community turned him toward 

part of those positive changes. 

The purpose of the Minority 
Affairs Program is not only to bring 
minority students to Sewanee but 
also to help create a supportive 
environment for them. As those 
things are done, the advantages 
Sewanee offers are as valuable to 
minority students as they are to 

"Sewanee has not made itself 
known in minority communities," 
said Benjamin. '1 believe that once 
Sewanee's offerings are known, a 
great many high-caliber students 
will be interested. We are 
beginning to get unsolicited 
inquiries and applications. That is 
what we want to happen." 

The search for minority 
candidates has not ignored Hispanic 
students, but more systematic plans 
are being made to contact young 
peopla from this vast and growing 

Finally the program has a goal of 
broadening the educational 

"The experience I had with 
Sewanee made me want to return 
for this job," he said. "If I had a 
chance to attend college ten times, I 
would attend Sewanee all ten 

He had a close relationship with 
two English professors, Charles 
Harrison and the Rev. William 
Ralston, C'51. 'They did more than 
any others in shaping me as a 
student," he said. 

Benjamin became secretary and 
then president of the Honor 
Council. He was vice-president of 
the Sewanee Boys' Club and was 
president of the Sewanee Jazz 

Upon graduation he entered 
Emory Law School, took time out to 
work, and for a time was a 
consultant for an economic 
development firm before finishing 
law studies at North Carolina 
Central in Durham. His career was 
given a boost when he won a 
Reginald Heber Smith Fellowship, 
which led him to a position with the 
Atlanta Legal Aid Society. 

"I went to law school because I 
wanted to be a part of the many 
positive changes going on in 
society," he said. Coming to 
Sewanee as Minority Affairs 
Director indicates that he is still

though they did not find the 
decisions easy ones to make. 

"My reason for coming is the 
same as anyone else's, to get a good 
education," said Eric Waldon, C'85, 
of Atlanta. 

Eugenia Williams, C'86, of 
Atlanta first became acquainted 
with Sewanee when Mr. Benjamin 
accompanied Jim Hill, C'79, a 
former assistant in the admissions 
office, in a visit to her Atlanta high 

"We were wondering why they 
came to visit an all-black high 
school from an all-white college," 
she said. 

Glennis Washington, C'87, of 
Chattanooga had her mind made up 
that she was going to the 
University of Tennessee at 
Chattanooga, until she met Mr. 
Benjamin at a Medical Enrichment 
Program run by UT.

"The Minority Student Affairs 
Committee felt that Sewanee could 
only maintain its reputation as a 
superior academic institution if it 
included a diverse student body of 
excellent quality. The student body 
had to include black students and 
other minority students," said 
Harold Goldberg, associate 
professor of history and committee 
chairman. The major question was 
how to attract the students. 

,r We knew as soon as we met Eric 
Benjamin that he was an 
extraordinary man, but we only 
now realize how fortunate we were 
that he decided to work at 
Sewanee," said James W. Clayton, 
associate professor of religion, who 
was closely involved in the 
establishment of the Minority 
Affairs Committee. 

His first black recruits also speak 
highly of Mr. Benjamin, whom they 
seek out for advice and counsel. But 
Benjamin avoids the credit and 
would sooner give it to Sewanee.

referring to the white students who 
are faced with only the superficial

dispelled. Mainly I have grown in 
ways here I know I would not have 
grown in other places." 

Clevis Headley, C'85, of Delray 
Beach, Florida, a founder of the 
Student-Faculty Dialogue, prefers 
to speak from a different 
perspective. "The question is why 
did Sewanee choose me. I had some 
qualities that I could contribute to 
Sewanee, and I have an obligation 
to leave it a better place than I 
found it." 

Headley characterized the 
Sewanee faculty and administration 
as "second to none, a group of

been almost indispensable from the 
viewpoint of the students. They 
recite a long list of ways he helps

graduate schools, in addition to 
more personal concerns.

Industrial Policy and 
International Trade 

by Z. Aubrey SUberston 

The fifth annual Sewanee 
Economics Symposium was held at 
the University of the South from 
March 1st to March 3rd. This year 
the subject of the symposium was 
"Industrial Policy and International 
Trade," a theme chosen because of 
its current interest in the United 
States and other highly 
industrialized countries. 

The reference to international 
trade in the title of the symposium 
reflected the fact that industrial 
policy was often linked with 
protection of domestic industries 
from foreign competition. It was 
thought important that this issue 
should be discussed together with 
other international aspects of 
industrial policy. 

As this year's Kennedy 
Distinguished Professor of 
Economics and, therefore, chairman 
of the symposium, I was fortunate 
to be able to gather together an 
impressive list of participants from 
Europe and the United States. 
There were three participants from 
England — Derek Morris, economic 
director of the National Economic 
Development Office, David 
Newbery of Churchill College, 
Cambridge, and Andrea Boltho of 
Magdalen College, Oxford. From 
Europe came Zoltan Roman, 
director of the Research Institute of 
Industrial Economics of the 
Hungarian Academy of Sciences; 
Emst-Jurgen Horn, of the Institute 
for World Economics, Kiel, 
Germany; Michele Ledic, of the 
University of Zagreb, Yugoslavia; 
and Jean Louis Juvet of the 
University of Neuchatel, 
Switzerland. A distinguished list of 
American economists was headed 
by Lawrence Klein of the 
University of Pennsylvania, Nobel 
Laureate in economics. Others from 
the the United States included 
Robert Aliber of the University of 
Chicago, Gary Huibauer of the 
Institute for International 
Economics, Washington, and F. R. 
Warren-Bolton of the Anti-Trast 
Division, Department of Justice. 

Considering the diverse 

backgrounds of the participants 
there was a surprising degree of 
general agreement among them, 
although there were of course 
differences on a number of points. 
Very early in the symposium it 
became evident that in those 
countries where an active industrial 
policy had been attempted, such as 
Britain, Hungary, and to a lesser 
extent West Germany, there was a 
good deal of skepticism aboout how 
far industrial policy had achieved 
the goals set for it — the 
modernizing of the country's 
industry and the strengthening of 
its competitive position. 

The sharpest clash on this subject 
came over the case of Japan. 
Andrea Boltho argued strongly that 
guidance from MITI (the Japanese 
Ministry for Industry) had been an 
important factor in helping Japan 
to achieve its industrial success. 
Other participants threw doubt on 
this view, contending that several 
Japanese industries which had not 
been singled out for development by 
Mrn had done well, and that 
Japanese entrepreneurs were fully 
capable, without government 
guidance, of making good industrial 
choices, which they could then 
implement with the help of a highly 
trained and disciplined labor force. 
There was general agreement, 
however, that if industrial policy 
had been successful in the case of 
Japan, this was an exceptional case. 

A scheme to deal with American 
industries in difficulties, which 
relied on channeling revenues from 
import duties into adjustment aid 
for firms in particular industries, 
was put forward by Washington 
economists Gary Huibauer and 
Howard Rosen. This idea came in 
for a good deal of adverse criticism. 
It was argued that there was no 
logic in linking expenditure on 
industry adjustment to particular 
revenues. Indeed, the whole idea of 
selecting particular industries for 
assistance found little favor with 
many participants, with Frederick 
Warren-Bolton of the Justice 
Department taking a particularly

Cushman, Jr., professor of history. 

strong free-trade line. 

Another issue that was raised 
was the effects on developing 
countries of import restrictions by 
the wealthy nations. David 
Newbery argued that protectionism 
had had little effect in the 1970s on 
the overall performance of the 
developing countries, but that 
limiting imports by means of quotas 
had been a costly and ineffective 
way of protecting workers in 
declining industries in countries 
such as the USA. Increased 
protectionism in the future would 
lead to greater difficulties than in 
the past for developing countries, 
with their large debt burdens and 
consequent need for exports, as well 
as to further inefficiency in 
developed countries. 

The links between advanced and 
developing countries were explored 
from a different point of view by 
Michele Ledic and myself, who were 
concerned with technology transfer 
between nations. We stressed the 
importance of technology transfer 
by such countries as the United 
States to newly industrializing 
countries, but pointed out that 
imported technology was unlikely 
to be effectively used unless it was 
supported by research and 
development in the countries 
importing technology, as it had 
been in the case of Japan. 

The overall conclusions of the 
symposium were well expressed by 
Lawrence Klein in his contribution 
to the discussion. He stressed the 
importance of appropriate 
macroeconomic policies in the 
leading countries as a background 
for industrial health. He 
emphasized also the importance of 
maintaining free-trade policies. 

Policies for assisting or 
encouraging particular industries 
should, in his view, be avoided as 
much as possible. The attention of 
government should be focused not 
on "picking the winning race horse" 
but on "improving the breed," and 
this means adopting policies to 
improve the standard of forecasting, 
and also of research and education, 
thus preparing a country's 
managers and workers to adapt to 

changing industrial needs. 

On the macroeconomic front the 
USA had particular responsibilities, 
and should act as the "locomotive" 
in pulling the world economy out of 
the depression. Even better would 
be for the leading industrialized 
countries to act as a "convoy," with 
all working together for world 

A final question to be raised was 
how rich countries should behave 
when faced with import restrictions 
on their exports to poorer countries. 
Regrettable as this was recognized 
to be — and not necessarily in the 
interests of the poor countries 
themselves — it was felt that 
reciprocal action by the rich 
countries was not the best solution. 

Rich countries might try to use 
their economic power to bargain 
with poor countries and to persuade 
them to. dismantle their barriers. 
Consumers in the developed 
countries benefited from cheap 
imports, whether or not the 
countries exporting these products 
adopted free-trade policies. What 
has been needed is an assurance 
that low export prices reflected low 
costs, not the creation of temporary 
reductions in price in an attempt to 
disrupt markets. 

The proceedings of the 
symposium will, it is hoped, be 
published by the University of 
Pennsylvania Press. A wider 
audience should therefore benefit 
from the discussions that took place . 
at the University of the South 
during this lively meeting. 

Mr. SUberston was the Kennedy 
Distinguished Professor of 
Economics and director of the 
Sewanee Economics Symposium 
during the spring semester. He was 
on leave from the Imperial College of 
Science and Technology at the 
University of London. 


The Dean's Column: 

Moves and Changes 

by the Very Rev. John E. Booty 

The School of Theology is on the move. Work is progressing rapidly on 
the renovation of Hamilton Hall on the old Academy campus. We expect 
to begin the next academic year there in facilities vastly superior to 
those we presently inhabit. The auditorium, or round tower, is being 
modified to some extent to provide temporary chapel space while a new 
chapel, the gift of Paul and Evelyn Howell of Houston, is being planned 
and constructed. We have decided not to rush the building of the chapel 
but to use the opportunity to think through the theological and 
liturgical dimensions of our life and work in this place, praying that the 
eventual structure will be expressive of and contribute to the realization 
of our highest goals for theological education. 

The faculty is changing. Jack Gessell has resigned his position as 
professor of Christian ethics, but will remain as editor of the St. Luke's 
Journal. Edna Evans will retire at the end of this coming academic 
year. Craig Anderson has been elected Bishop of South Dakota and will 
be leaving in August. During the coming year we intend to conduct a 
comprehensive search for new faculty to take the place of those 
departing. In the meantime, Bill Hethcock will "shepherd" our pastoral 
theology program, drawing upon the services of people with expertise 
both here and elsewhere. Paul Elmen, the distinguished professor 
emeritus of moral theology at Seabury- Western Seminary, will be with 
us for a year. And Joe Monti, who assisted us year before last, will join 
the faculty for a year to teach theology while Bob Hughes is on 
sabbatical and to assist us in various ways in the rest of the program. 

One reason for not bringing new permanent faculty on board hastily 
has to do with the thought we have been giving to our curriculum. It is 
to be hoped that by the time we come to the final decisions as to new 
faculty we shall have a clear vision of the ways in which the curriculum 
needs to be changed, strengthened, affirmed. . 

We anticipate another large junior class. The prospects are good. One 
thing is very clear. Many of the students we are receiving now are 
looking for assistance in spiritual growth, in the life of prayer, and in 
spiritual direction. Our resources are being strained. Furthermore, 
many of our students are coming with unresolved personal problems 
and are in need of counseling. I feel keenly the need to have someone on 
the staff (call that person chaplain or assistant dean for students, 
whatever the name) who is spiritually perceptive, capable of giving 
spiritual direction, and someone with counseling skills, perhaps with 
some special work background. The viability of this place depends in 
part at least upon our willingness and ability to meet the spiritual, 
individual, and social needs of our students— and of our faculty as well. 
I know that the dean is charged with this responsibility, but thus far 
this dean has not been allowed to function as a chaplain nor has he 
some of the special skills, in counseling and social work, needed in this 

I began by saying that the School of Theology is on the move. I pray, 
and ask that you pray, that we are being guided by the Holy Spirit as

"commencement" at the Church of St. Michael and All Angels in 
Anniston, Alabama. 

Challenging Lives 
Through EFM 

The Rev. Christopher Bryan takes center stage in the Sewanee Chorale's 
presentation of "Trial by Jury, a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. The 
performance was given in Convocation Hall. 

"Education for Ministry makes me 
want to learn more," said Ruth 
Manier, who at ninety-one years of 
age, with a master's degree from 
Columbia University and years of 
travel abroad, haB discovered that 
she is not quite through with life. 
Not yet. Nor is God through with 

Mrs. Manier was one of nine 
members of the Church of St. 
Michael and All Angels in 
Anniston, Alabama, to graduate 
from the four-year EFM program of 
Bairnwick Center at the University 
of the South. She is believed to be 
the oldest person to graduate from a 
program at Sewanee. 

The "commencement" was held 
during an Evensong service in 
April. Dr. Anne Johnson, who was 
mentor for the group, presented her 
students. The certificates were 
awarded to them by the Rev. Dr. 
Edward de Bary, C'61, T'68, EFM 
program manager. 

These graduates — their average 
age was sixty-five — were all lay 
persons who had followed a 
theological education course based 
on the core-curriculum of Sewanee's 
School of Theology, a program in 
which over 11,000 people have 

EFM students meet in weekly 
seminars, which last from two to 
three hours. They discuss the 
subject matter of each week's 
lesson, engage in disciplined 
theological reflection, and worship 

"I considered myself a very poor 
member,of the church before I 
moved to Anniston," said Mrs. 
Manier, who had moved from 
Nashville five years before to be 
near her daughter. Tve been a 

much better member Bince; EFM 
stimulates us." 

As a youth Mrs. Manier worked 
her way through Barnard College 
in New York and graduated from 
Columbia a few years later. She 
once walked in a suffragette parade 
on Fifth Avenue, served with the 
YMCA in Europe during World 
War I, and taught college 
humanities. She has traveled to 
every continent and country in the 
world except the South Pole and 
Mainland China, much of it while 
the late Mr. Manier was president 
of Rotary International. 

Just as Mrs. Manier praised her 
experience with EFM, other 
graduates were enthusiastic about 
what the course had meant in their 
lives and ministries. The other 
members of the group were Marian 
Freeman, Lois Goodwyn, Mary 
Hobbs, Lynn Letson, Dr. Bob Lokey, 
Jack Price, James Sloan, and 
Jimmy Striplin. 

"We have the certificates, but we 
aren't finished," said Mrs. Freeman, 
an artist who also works as patient 
representative in the emergency 
room at Anniston's Regional 
Medical Center. "It gave me a 
pattern for the rest of my life. Now I 
consider my religion more a part of 
everything I do and am." 

Similarly, Judge Sloan, judge of 
Calhoun County Circuit Court, said 
that EFM has helped him redirect 
his efforts in dealing with troubled 
families and juveniles who are 
brought before his court. 

In his homily Dr. de Bary 
reminded the congregation that 
ministry belongs to all of us by 
virtue of our baptism when we 
promise to proclaim the Good News 
of God in Christ and to serve Christ 
by loving all persons.

and a Changing Ministry

Jenkins: You would have been 
up for retirement next year 
Gessell: No, here it's seventy. 
Jenkins: I was surprised that 
you are sixty-three. 
Gessell: Why are you surprised? 
Jenkins: Because you strike me 
as being much younger. 

Gessell: Oh, well, good. I feel 
younger. I don't really feel that I'm 
that age. But I think maybe that 
has to do with somehow immature 
or arrested development. 

Jenkins: Why did you come 

Gessell: I wanted to take part in

The Rev. John M. Gessell is 

resigning from the faculty of the 

School of Theology after twenty- 
three years of teaching. He will 

continue to edit the St. Luke's 

Journal of Theology as he has since 

1976. when he became the first 

faculty editor. 
Since coming to Sewanee in 1961, 

Mr. Gessell has taken an active role 

in the life of the Seminary and the 

University as a whole. He was 

assistant to the dean from 1963 to 

1973 and was involved in policy- 
making, long-range planning, and 

curriculum development. He was 

successively an assistant, associate, 

and full professor of pastoral 
theology and retires as professor of 
Christian ethics. 

He has published widely on 
theological education and peace and Episcopal Church, because I

contributions to the church are his 
service as chairman of the 
Episcopal Peace Fellowship for 
three years and his service on its 
national Executive Committee since 

Mr. Gessell's teaching presence 
will be missed greatly by his 
students. He is known to us all as 
"Jack." Recently, we talked at 
length about Sewanee, his 
resignation, and his plans. 

Mark A. Jenkins, T'85 
Jenkins: Why have you 

Gessell: I see it as a change in 
the direction of my career and 
vocation as a priest of the Church. 
And, in a positive way, I want to 
find more time to do some things 
that I haven't done like writing and 
working on peace and justice issues. 
One such writing project is a 
critical analysis of the peace 
documents of the Episcopal Church 
of the last two or three years 
including the Peace Commission's 
report. I think an analytical article 
is needed to get the discussion 

future of the University as a whole, 
about its future financial stability. 
And that obviously would have an 
impact on the School of Theology. I 
have often suggested that we ought 
to move to protect our own assets 
and go somewhere else to avoid any 
problems that might occur in the 
future. But much of what happens 
here will depend on the new faculty. 
Within three years, half the faculty 
will be replaced, and I think that 
the most crucial decision to be made 
by the dean and faculty concerns 
the selection of those people. There 
are going to be four, I think. Those 
positions are really important, not 
just in terms of what's being taught 
but whether the people who come 
are able to work together with the 
people who are here. Can we find 
people who are really competent 
and can we get the people who are 
competent to come here? I don't 
know how to answer that because I 
don't have that kind, of information, 
but it's going to depend on the vigor 
and energy the dean and faculty 


The Rev. John M. Gessell at the St. Luke's Journal office. 

widened and deepened and 
continued on some of these issues. 
Also, I've got some things that I 
want to do that are not directly 
related to these things. One of them 
is collecting books and selling them. 
Another is to find and restore a 
house of significant historical 
interest. Negatively, I think there's 
a certain amount of nonsense that 
goes on in Sewanee, and I don't feel 
I need to have to keep dealing with 
it. And I'm sure that's true with 
most institutions. But I also think 
that people don't need to deal with 
institutions close-up forever, and so 
Tve decided this is the end of 

Jenkins: Does the move of the 
School of Theology enter into this? 

Gessell: I had said that if we 
moved I didn't really want to be a 
part of it, though that's not the 
central reason. But since I made the 
decision formally and have 
announced it, I have not regretted 
it. I have voiced the fact that I will 
miss being with students and that 

thought there were some things 
that needed to be changed and the 
only way I could do it was by being 
on a faculty or being in some policy- 
making role. 

Jenkins: What kind of changes 
did you want to see? 

Gessell: Mainly what we now call 
the integration and appropriation of 
theological education with the 
student's own experience and faith 
commitments. While that may seem 
commonplace now, it was not so in 
the 'fifties. I can remember when I 
was in my second parish, one of my 
friends said, "Jack, what does the 
atonement mean?" I was baffled. I 
really couldn't answer the question. 
I had not been trained to make 
those connections and learned to do 
that after I was in parish work for 
several years. 

Jenkins: You came here, 
obviously, with a vision... 

Gessell: Oh, grandiose! I was 
going to reform theological 

Jenkins: Are you pessimistic? 

Gessell: About the School of 
Theology? No, I'm not pessimistic at 
all. I have a lot of anxiety about the 

can put into that kind of 

Jenkins: Do you see that to be 
the dean's major leadership role in 
the near future? 

Gessell: Yes. And I think he 
does, too. And I think that that is 
the most crucial point for the school. 

Jenkins: What do you think of 
the National Conference of Catholic 
Bishops' statement on nuclear 

Gessell: I think that, on the 
whole, it is a strong statement 
condemning in principle the use of 
nuclear weapons in light of just war 
theory, the criteria of which most 
people would agree cannot be met 
by the use of nuclear weapons. 

Jenkins: Has the Episcopal 
Church taken this hard a stand on 
the issue of nuclear war? 

Gessell: No. An interpretation of 
the two pastoral letters of the 
House of Bishops on peace suggests 
that they are strong statements but 
this is not the stand of the Church 
as such. The letters raise some 
questions we need to think about 
clearly. What is the impact of the 
arms race on the poor? What is the 
impact of the prospect of nuclear 

war on young people? And so on. 
Jenkins: Well, we really don't 
seem to have taken as... 

Gessell: Not as clear-cut a stand. 
And I would hope that someday 
soon we could. In addition to the 
two pastoral letters and the joint 
commission's report, there arc, as 
you know, several statements by 
General Convention. I think that 
those several resolutions, on 
examination, would prove to be a 
basis for a fairly strong statement, 
not calling for certain kinds of 
conscientious resistance because 
that would be inappropriate, but 
making clear that this is not only 
permitted but when it happens 
must be supported as an act of 
Christian conscience by members of 
this Church. I would say that the 
most decisive statements are those 
of General Convention, but they 
need really to be examined 
carefully because they ought to be 
expanded to make clear what they 

Jenkins: Are you saying the 
bishops ought to expand them? 
Gessell: No, I don't care who 
does. I think someone ought to 
expand them. You ask why we 
haven't, and the problem is that 
compared to the Roman Catholic 
Church, we do not have a 
magisterium. Anglicans never have 
had a magisterium. Hence, there is 
no central authoritative body which 
issues teachings that ought to be 
accepted by the faithful. I don't 
want to get into the business about 
being mushy and fuzzy, because I 
don't think that's the issue. The 
reason is, or at least the way we 
rationalize it is, as you probably 
know, Hooker's insistence on the 
three: reason, scripture, and 
tradition. You see, he doesn't say 
authority, he just says tradition. 
And that means you will not gety 
the same kind of clear cut, hard- 
hitting, unequivocal statements 
that Rome apparently puts out. 

Jenkins: Would you say, then, 
that in Anglicanism it becomes the 
responsibility of the individual? 

Gessell: Precisely. And this 
assumes that the individual is 
capable of that kind of theological 
and moral reasoning. Now, that 
assumption may be egregious, but I 
think that's one of the advantages 
of being Anglican. And it has its 

Jenkins: Is there any way, in 
your opinion, one might justify 
sitting back and keeping quiet? 
Gessell: No. 

Jenkins: Do you think too many 
Episcopalians do? 

Gessell: Not any more than 
anybody else. And I'm not sure how 
much sitting back and keeping 
quiet there is any more. But, on the 
other hand, Yd like to point out that 
Rome has only recently found its 

Jenkins: Do you expect a nuclear 

Gessell: I don't expect it. I am 
fearful that it could happen. I really 
don't think anybody wants to start 
it. I don't even think Reagan wants 
to, but I think he'd do it. I think he 
thinks he could win. What I'm 

(continued on next page)

(continued from previous page) 
afraid of is that it runs out of 
control, has a life of its own, in a 
way that technology gets beyond 
our control. 

Jenkins: Is it demonic? 

Gessell: Well, that's what 
demonic means, isn't it? The vital 
powers of creation erupting from 
the depths and destroying all. It's 
not the use of power for some 
constructive purpose. It's developed 
in ways that are unimaginably 

Jenkins: Are you hopeful? 

Gessell: Yes, without making 
any sort of decision to be. And I 
suspect that when I taste despair, 
that this is an aberration. So I 
guess I'm saying hope is a function 
of being human. 

Jenkins: Who is Jack Gessell? 

Gessell: (long pause) The reason 
I'm pausing is I'm not sure where to 
pick it up. It's interesting. I 
remember when shortly after I was 
in my first parish somebody said, 
"Let's go around and ask people 
who they are and see what happens. 
But before we do tha't, who are 
you?" And I said, Tm a priest." 
And that's true, I am, and that's an 
important part of my life. But I 
don't think that's where I'd start 
any more. I think I'd say I am a 
human being or something like 
that, and identify myself in what I 

think would be a more basic way 
than in terms of my function. In a 
sense functions are roles, not to 
belittle the vocation, but are not as 
important as the essential being 
and integrity of the person. I'll tell 
you what I value in myself. I value 
iny concern about integrity. I'm not 
always a person of integrity, but I'm 
aware of the fact that that's what I 
really want to be, and that's what I 
really work at trying to be. I have a 
hard time sometimes telling the 
truth, but I want to. I have a hard 
time sometimes being honest with 
myself and people, but that's what I 
want to do. I guess I would answer 
your question somehow in relation 
to that sense of my hope for the 
kind of integrity and the way in 
which I relate to other people. Just 
as I said, I'm not always a person of 
integrity, but I hope I know that. 
My relations to other people are 
often chaotic, but I'm aware of that. 
So I can't say that Tm a person who 
relates well to other people and that 
that relationship is always 
constructive and creative. But I am 
saying that these are important to 
me, and these are values in my life 
that I want to continue to think of 
as important. And probably as long 
as I'm conscious, I will see these as 
centers of reflection and meditation 
and prayer and action. So, who am 
I? Some one for whom these values 
are important. 

Special Plans Made 

for St. Luke's Convocation 

The Rev. Robert Hughes 


Hughes Wins Grant 

The Rev. Robert D. Hughes, 
assistant professor of systematic 
theology, has been awarded a 
$5,000 grant from the Conant Fund 
through the Board of Theological 
Education of the Episcopal Church. 
The grant will help support work on 
a book Mr. Hughes is writing which 
is about the new sacramental 
theology from an Anglican and 
ecumenical perspective. He will be 

working on the book during a 
sabbatical leave second semester of 
next year. At the same time, he will 
be a visiting scholar at the 
Episcopal Divinity School in 
Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 
addition to his teaching, Dr. 
Hughes is director of the Anglican 
Center for Christian Family Life 
and a trainer for the Education for 
Ministry Program. 

Special plans are being made in 
preparation for St. Luke's 
Convocation, the School of 
Theology's Homecoming, October 

The Alumni Council, meeting 
May 1, expressed concerns about 
the lack of interest in this annual 
gathering and pledged to help give 
it new life. 

"We hope to restructure the 
meeting and schedule activities so 
that they will bring more alumni 
back to Sewanee," said Council 
President W. Robert Abstein of 
Marietta, Georgia. 

The DuBose Lectures are regular 
features of Homecoming. 

A new item of important business 
will be the election of three 
members to the Council. 
Nomination forms are being sent to 
all alumni, and a slate will be 
compiled for the annual meeting. 
Then the election will be held at the 
alumni luncheon (which is a change 
from the previous custom of holding 
an alumni breakfast). 

The current members of the 
Council in addition to the Rev. Mr. 
Abstein are: Martin R. Tilson, vice- 
president; Bishop Leopold Frade; H. 
King Oehmig; Bertie Pittman; 

Sister Lucy Shetters; Harry W. 
Crandall; Maurice L. "Rusty" 
Goldsmith; Robert G. Certain; 
Hendree Harrison; and three 
members whose terms end this 
year, Richard Bridgford, Charles 
McKimmon, and John Jenkins. 

Also during the spring Council 
meeting, members discussed the 
Seminary's ten-year self-study to be 
submitted to the Association of 
Theological Schools. The Council is 
involved in several ways in making 
suggestions that can lead to specific 
actions. Mr. Abstein said the 
members were very pleased with 
the self-study and mentioned their 
affirmation of the curriculum in 

The Council also selected a 
committee of its members to 
respond to proposals for the chapel 
to be built on the new campus, and 
the Council visited the facilities 
now being renovated on the new 

Mr. Abstein said the Council was 
"impressed and pleased with the 
first-class way the plans are being 
carried out" in Hamilton Hall, 
which will house classrooms, offices, 
and guest quarters. , 

Books to Recommend 

The following note was provided by 
a member of the faculty, and thus 
begins a regular column about 
current books. It is hoped that 
alumni and friends will, through 
this column, discover books of value 
for study and reflection. 
Alan Geyer's The Idea of 
Disarmament has as its mind- 
catching subtitle, "Re-thinking the 
Unthinkable." It is published by the 
Brethren Press and the Churches' 
Center for Theology and Public 
Policy, 1982. Geyer confronts the 
churches for their irresponsibility 
in failing to engage in systematic 
reflection in this area of war and 
peace, indeed for a theological 
failure. He wants to go beyond the 
traditional approaches of the just 
war, Christian pacifism, and the so- 
called school of "ethical realism" 
popularized by Reinhold Niebuhr, 
and others of the 1940s. 

In the same area of inquiry is the 
United States Conference on 
Catholic Bishops' pastoral, The 
Challenge of Peace: God's Promise 
and Our Response. It is available 
from Pax World Foundation, 100 
Maryland Avenue, N.E., 
Washington, D.C. 20002. Anyone 
who wants to think about nuclear 
arms and disarmament and about 
the nuclear deterrent cannot escape 
reading this pastoral, which will, I 
believe, rank among the great 
Roman Catholic documents of the 
twentieth century. 

Further, there is Freeman 
Dyson's Weapons and Hope, 
published this year by Harper and 
Row. It first appeared in four 
installments during the month of 
February in the New Yorker 
magazine. It requires close reading 
but is worth it because Dyson, 
heavily involved in the freeze and 
disarmament movements, is a 
world-ranked scientist who wants to 
propose some solutions which 
appear to be novel. Peace Thinking 
in a Warring World by Edward 
LeRoy Long, Jr., published by 
Westminster in 1983, is not very 
profound but is a very useful book 
with, for example, church adult 
classes. He wants to suggest new 
ways of thinking about 
fundamental problems related to 
war and peace. 

In another area of concern, 
Robert L. McCan, a priest of our 
church, has written World Economy 
and World Hunger: The Response of 
the Churches. It is published by 
University Publications «f America, 
1982, and addresses some basic 
problems about which we all need 
to be concerned and informed, 
especially in view of the impending 
crisis of hunger in Africa. McCan is 
the associate director of the 
Churches' Center for Theology and 
Public Policy, noted above in 
connection with Alan Geyer's book. 

The Rev. John M. Gessell 

Called to Mission 
and the Episcopate 

by David Parker, T*84 

The Rev. Craig Barry Anderson, 
elected Bishop of South Dakota in 
March, will leave Sewanee this 
summer to continue an active 
ministry that has touched almost 
every phase of life on the Mountain 
during the past twelve years. 
At forty-two, he will be the 
youngest member of the House of 
Bishops; and he is the third member 
of the faculty of the School of 
Theology to be elected to the 

Craig, as he is known to the 
seminarians who study pastoral 
theology under his tutelage, entered 
the School of Theology in 1972. 
Since that time, he has served as 
chaplain and instructor of religion 
at St. Andrew's School, assistant 
University chaplain, National 
Guard chaplain for the area, priest- 
in-charge of Christ Church, Alto, 
and since 1977 as a School of 
Theology faculty member. 

In addition, he has earned a 
master's degree from Vanderbilt 
University and is nearing 
completion of a Ph.D. from 
Vanderbilt in pastoral theology. 

Last March 3, in a special 
convention held at Grace Church in 
Huron, Anderson was elected 
eighth Bishop of South Dakota. As 
he prepares to leave Sewanee, Craig 
Anderson looks back on his 
experience in the University 
community and anticipates his 
ministry in the episcopate. 

"Sewanee has been good to me 
and my family in terms of my 
experience as a seminarian and the 
various opportunities for ministry 
that have been afforded me," he 
comments. "The support that I have 
felt from the School of Theology in 
pursuing doctoral work and in my 
teaching career has been central to 
my life." 

While a seminarian, Anderson 
was the recipient of the Woods 
Leadership Award and served two 
years as editor of the St. Luke's 
Journal of Theology. Upon 
graduation, the late Dean Urban T. 
Holmes encouraged him to pursue 
graduate studies. He was awarded a 
Hartman fellowship, which is 
awarded to alumni of the School of 
Theology for additional graduate 

"Terry Holmes was a guiding 
force and a mentor for me," Craig 
recalls. "It was through his 
encouragement that I pursued 
pastoral theology and became 
interested in the relationship 
between psychology and theology." 

The new bishop-elect is 
completing his doctoral dissertation 
entitled "A Phenomenology of 
Pastoral Care as a Preface to the 
Concern for Method in the Field of 
Pastoral Care." His research 

examines pastoral care from the 
perspective of Edmund Husserl's 
phenomenology as interpreted by 
Edward Farley. 

"The central elements of my 
doctoral research have been 
intersubjectivity and intentional ity , 
two aspects of pastoral care that 
have not been previously explored," 
he said. 

As he prepares to leave his 
faculty position, Anderson remains 
committed to theological education. 

The Rev. Craig Anderson 

"Theological education is central 
to the life and mission of the 
Church," he said. "And I am 
especially supportive of Dean John 
Booty's vision for the School of 

"There are two things about that 
vision that excite me. First, it 
recognizes the seminary as a place 
for theological education that goes 
beyond just preparing persons for 
ordained ministry. In this 
movement he the opportunity for an 
increase in the student body, 
additional course offerings, and a 
greater academic rigor that avoids 
faddish human potential 
movements that have plagued the 
Church for the past twenty years. 

"Secondly, I believe Dean Booty's 
vision for this seminary takes our 
context seriously through emphasis 

on ministry in small, rural 
Appalachian churches." 

Having se rve d for seven years in 
the mission congregation at Alto, 
Craig sees the School of Theology as 
moving in the direction of greater 
involvement with the surrounding 

"It is inconceivable to me that a 
seminary professor couldn't become 
actively involved in parish ministry 
while teaching," he commented. 
In addition to his ministry at 
Alto, Craig has also been active in 
the work of the Appalachian 
Peoples' Service Organization 
(APSO) and sees strong links 
between Appalachian ministry and 
his new ministry in South Dakota. 

"South Dakota represents a 
special kind of challenge in 
ministry," he noted. "It is a large 
diocese in terms of geography and 
numbers of congregations and 
communicants, and it is bi-cultural. 

"The central issue is that of 
respecting the native American 
Indian culture without becoming 
romantic or sentimental or cynical 
while addressing in a prophetic way 
the various forms of oppression that 
are a part of that culture." 

The Diocese of South Dakota 
includes all of the state and parts of 
North Dakota, Minnesota, and 
Nebraska. The diocese has 130 
churches, 90 of which are on Indian 

Despite a busy schedule 
associated with his transition, 
Craig has begun to study both the 
Lakota and Dakota Indian dialects. 
"You don't know the culture until 
you know the language," he says. 

Craig plans to teach in the Doctor 
of Ministry program at Sewanee 
this summer before moving to 
South Dakota with his wife, Liz, 
and their three children, Court, 
Megan, and Ragnar. 

The community will miss his 
presence on the faculty, his 
involvement in the broader 
community, and his command of the 
language as both preacher and 

As he puts it: "I hate to leave, but 
it's time." 

The ordination and consecration of 
the Rev. Mr. Anderson will be held 
at 7 p.m. July 27 at Our Lady of 
Perpetual Help Roman Catholic 
Cathedral in Rapid City, South 
Dakota. His installation as bishop 
will be held in September in Calvary 
Episcopal Cathedral in Sioux Falls, 
the site of the diocesan office. 

The Alumni Council of the School of Theology would like to make a 
special request to al umni 

Two of your fellow graduates have begun episcopates in dioceses 
that have very special needs. Leo Frade, T77, bishop of Honduras, is 
facing challenges that may seem almost insurmountable and 
certainly are beyond the means of that diocese to solve. Craig 
Anderson, T75, bishop-elect of South Dakota, is in a very different 
kind of diocese but one in which there is an immense untapped 
potential for the Church. 

Both Bishop Frade and Bishop-elect Anderson can use financial 
contributions from outside their dioceses in order to build strong 
ministries among native populations. 

In support of their work the Alumni Council is asking for gifts to be 
sent to Dean John Booty. These funds will be distributed to the 
discretionary funds of Bishop Frade and Bishop-elect Anderson. 

They will be sustained and strengthened by our prayers and gifts. 

SPCK Leaders 
Touched by a 
World Crying 

The 286-year-old British missionary 
society, SPCK, which has 
established hundreds of libraries 
and schools, distributed thirty 
million books and Bibles worldwide, 
translated the Book of Common 
Prayer into 150 languages, and 
supported publication projects in 
108 nations, has established a 
branch in the United States. 
The Society for Promoting 
Christian Knowledge, SPCK/USA, 
has opened its office in Sewanee*. A 
dedication service was held March 
13 in the University's All Saints' 
Chapel during the first meeting of 
the Board of Trustees. 

At that meeting the board 
members, who represent a broad 
cross-section of Episcopal clergy and 
lay leaders, began developing the 
future course of the new American 
branch. Funding the development 
and distribution of Christian 
literature in Latin America and 
Africa will be the focus of efforts 

The board had not even met 
before appeals for help were 
received from Kenya in East Africa 
and from the Rt. Rev. Leo Frade, 
T77, the new bishop of Honduras. 

Thomas S. Tisdale, C'61, an 
attorney in Charleston, South 
Carolina, has been instrumental in 
establishing the SPCK branch in 
America and is the society's first 

"SPCK has desired for many 
years to establish a branch in 
America," he said. "Patrick Gilbert, 
the general secretary of SPCK in 
England, contacted me through a 
mutual friend, and in 1983 he came 
to visit me in Charleston." 

Mr. Tisdale then arranged 
subsequent meetings with the Rt. 
Rev. C. FitzSimons Allison, C'49, of 
South Carolina, Vice-Chancellor 
Robert M. Ayres, Jr., C'49, and the 
Very Rev. John E. Booty, dean of 
the School of Theology. 

"We realized the importance of 
Episcopalians' participation in this 
worldwide effort as part of the 
Anglican Communion of sixty-five 
million members," Mr. Tisdale said. 
"The promotion of Christian 
knowledge through literature is 
vital to the work of the Church." 

Several factors contributed to the 
selection of Sewanee as the location 
of the American office: the close 
association the University of the 
South has had with England, the 
interest of Vice-ChanceHor Ayres 
and others at Sewanee in world 
mission, and the outreach that has 
made and is making the University 
a major center for the Church in the 
United States. 

"Our goal will be to aid the 
dissemination of Christian 
literature primarily through people

and material growth of people. 

"In nation after nation, the gift of 
education came through the 
church," he said. "This Christian 
ministry of print is not optional; it 
is an integral part of our mission." 

With the SPCK office in Sewanee, 
that mission now has a new focus in 
the Episcopal Church.

Thank you very much for your 
information about the launching of 
SPCKIUSA earlier this month with 
its target of development, 
publication, and distribution of 
literature to aid Christian ministry 

in developing countries. 

The role of SPCK has been vital in 
the ongoing work of the Episcopal 
Church here in Madagascar. 
Without massive support, we would 
be completely without any service 
books whatsoever. We are currently 
receiving books for the Theological 
College library which we could not 
possibly afford otherwise. The next 
major step forward will be the 
development of literature for the 
Church by the Church here. 

Thus we appreciate fully the 
importance of your new venture and 
wish you every success and blessing 
in this.

Sewanee Slips to 
Third in CAC Festival 

Bill Huyclc 

New Director 
of Athletics 

The University has selected as its 
new director of athletics Bill Huyck, 
track coach and chairman of the 
physical education department at 
Carleton College in Northfield, 

Head football coach Horace Moore 
has been serving as interim director 
since last year when Walter Bryant, 
who held the position for thirty 
years , became director of the 
alumni fund in the development 

"Coach Huyck comes to us from a 
very successful program at a highly 
respected liberal arts college," said 
Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Avres, 
Jr. "Hib experience and outlook will 
be valuable to our program." 

Huyck has taught and coached for 
twenty-seven years at Carleton 
College, where he was also a star 
athlete and a 1953 graduate. He 
also studied at the University of 

He has been coach of track and 
cross country since 1957. His teams 
have won twelve Midwest 
Conference cross country 
championships, seven indoor track 
championships, and five outdoor 
track titles. His 1980 cross country 
team won the NCAA Division m 
National Championships, and in 
seven of the past nine years, his 
teams have placed no worse than 
sixth in the national meet. 

Twenty-one of his track athletes 
have received All-America honors, 
and three have won NCAA post- 
graduate scholarships. 

From 1957 to 1963, Coach Huyck 
was also Carleton's ice hockey coach 
and assistant football coach. He has 
been department chairman since 
1979 and full professor of physical 
education since 1973. He haB also 
served as interim dean of 
admissions and for nine years was 
coordinator of summer institutes at 

An active NCAA track official 
since 1965, Coach Huyck has 
taught at numerous track clinics 
throughout the country. He has 
written thirteen articles which have 
been published in track and athletic 
journals. In 1979 he was inducted 
into the Carleton College Athletic 
Hall of Fame. 

Since last fall Sewanee led the race 
for the all-conference trophy and 
then struggled through a rain- 
drenched spring festival at Centre 
College and came out with an 
overall third place in the College 
Athletic Conference. 

The CAC champion was Centre, 
which won the golf and baseball 
titles to pass both Sewanee and 
Rose-Hulman, which finished in 
second place. 


Going into the conference sports 
festival, the Tigers held an 
impressive 12-5 record. 

"When you're having fun, you can 
relax," said Coach Dewey Warren, 
"and this is a key in winning ball 

His philosophy is hard to fault. 
The team averaged ten runs a game 
and had a combined batting 
average of .363. John Laurenzo, 
C'86, Mark Kent, C'87, and Phil 
Savage, C'87, each hit better than 
.400. Kent and Laurenzo won four 
games apiece on the mound. 

Approaching the CAC festival at 
Centre, Coach Warren said the 
tournament schedule was good for 
Sewanee, but the schedule was 
scrapped when rain washed out the 
first two days. The teams then went 
to a double-elimination format of 
five-inning games. All the games 
were played on Saturday. 

Sewanee finished with a 2-2 
record, beating Fisk 5-4 and Rose- 
Hulman 5-1 between losses to 
Centre 2-1 and 10-0. The Tigers 
finished second in the conference. 


"It's encouraging that when we 
bring six people to the meet, five of 
them place," said Coach Cliff Afton. 

Charles Yeomans, C'85, of 
Manchester, Tennessee, was second 
in the 10,000-meter run, and Mark 
Vandiver, C'86, of Henderson ville, 
Tennessee, was third in the shot 
put. But the numbers were too 
small, and the Tigers finished last 
in the six-team CAC field. 

A new all-weather track is 
scheduled to be completed before 
next season and should help attract 
more good track athletes to the ' 


The Tigers finished the regular 
season with a 13-13 record, which 
included a victory over nationally 
ranked Emory and Henry. 

In the CAC tournament, they fell 
victim to a surprising dark horse, 
Rose-Hulman, and Sewanee took a 
fourth place. First and second 
places went to Principia and Centre 

Coach Norman Kalkhoff said the 
team will be stronger despite the 
loss to graduation of number-four 
player, Fred Tritschler, and number 
six, Carl Brutkiewicz. 


The Tiger linksmen did not lose to a 
Division III or non-conference 
opponent all season and were 
aiming for the national 
championships going into the CAC 

Led by Bill Hodges, C'84, an all- 
state player from Thomasville, 
Georgia, the team placed fourth in 
the Kennesaw Invitational, fourth 
in the Lee Invitational, and third in 
the Tennessee Intercollegiate 
Championships. Perhaps the team's 
best victory was against 
Southwestern, which trailed the 
Tigers by forty strokes. 

As the Tigers approached the 
conference meet, Coach Horace 
Moore pegged Centre as the favorite 
because of the home course. 

Hodges won the individual crown 
for the third consecutive year, but 
the Tigers fell behind by sixteen 
strokes on the first nine holes and 
had to battle back through the next 
twenty-seven holes to capture 
second place only two strokes 
behind Centre. 

"Usually you give the home team 
ten strokes," said Coach Moore. 
"They beat us by two. It was 
tough for our seniors to take; 
they've won it every year 
they've been here." 

Mark gent, C'87, ofHuntsville 
establishes good relations with the 
masked man behind the plate. 

CAC Changes 

The resignation of two members of 
the College Athletic Conference has 
changed Sewanee's football 
schedule and brought back an old 
foe, Samford University of 
Birmingham. Another traditional 
rival, Hampden-Sydney, is back on 
the schedule.

Century II 
Final Phase 

Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Ayres, 
Jr. proudly announced at a recent 
meeting of the Century II 
Campaign executive council that 
the Century II Fund was now two- 
thirds ($34 million) of the way 
toward its objective of $50 million, 
and proceeded to tell those 
assembled that plans for the final 
thrust were already being 

"The next phase of our effort 
concerns all the alumni," said Mr. 
Ayres, "and we must provide 
everyone with an opportunity to 
participate in thiB most important 
effort. In every city and area in 
which I have been for the past two- 
and-a-half years, I have been asked, 
"When are the alumni going to be 
given a chance to give?' Well, the 
answer is now. Traditionally, in 
every successful fund-raising 
campaign, all sectors of the 'family' 
are asked to participate. It was our 
plan to solicit major corporate, 
individual, and foundation gifts 
first. We have done that, and now it 
is time that we prepare for the 
larger effort of involving the rest of 
the Sewanee family." 

Mr. Ayres asked the vice- 
president for development, William 
U. Whipple, to outline the plan for 
the final phase. Mr. Whipple began 
his remarks with a brief synopsis of 
the eleven regional campaigns 
(Atlanta, Birmingham, 
Chattanooga, Dallas, Houston, 
Jacksonville, Lake Charles, 
Memphis, Nashville, Sewanee, and 
Shreveport) saying that efforts were 
under way in each of these areas to 
complete all of the outstanding 
calls. He pointed out that with the 
closing of the Jacksonville 
campaign, it became apparent that 
the majority of these areas would 
need a "phase two," and thus the 
idea for the final phase campaign 
was born. 

"In order for the campaign to 
work," said Mr. Whipple, "we must 
have the total monetary and time 
commitment of all of the class 
agents involved. If the agents do not 

set the example for their workers, 
the plan cannot succeed." 

Mr. Whipple went on to explain 
that the plan called for the class 
agents from the classes of 1935- 
1975 to assemble on the Mountain 
in May for a briefing by the Vice- 
Chancellor. At this briefing, the 
agents would be asked to go 
through previously screened 
biographical printouts of the 
members of their respective classes 
and rate each classmate as well as 
identify those individuals they felt 
they could enlist as workers in the 
nine areas (Jacksonville, Nashville, 
Memphis, Chattanooga, Atlanta, 
Birmingham, New Orleans, Dallas/ 
Ft. Worth, and Houston), which had 
been targeted for the final phase. 
The plan calls for the workers in 
those areas to make personal 
visitations to as many people as 
possible. Unlike previous area 
campaigns, the workers will choose 
from their area pool the people they 
wish to visit. No one will be 
assigned to anyone. Those alumni 
not chosen for personal visitations 
will be placed back in the general 
pool for a phone call at a later date 
from another city. The workers will 
also choose from the general pool 
people across the United States 
they feel comfortable calling on the 
phone and soliciting a pledge of 
$1,000 to $25,000 payable over five 
years. It is felt that the two-fold 
approach of personal visitations and 
phone solicitations will allow the 
largest number of alumni to be 
reached in the shortest time with 
the best possible results. The goal of 
this drive is to raise $1,000,000 
which will be used to endow an 
alumni chair. 

The time element was touched 
upon by the Vice-Chancellor when 
he said, "We hope to conclude all 
organized efforts of fund-raising for 
the Century II Fund by the end of 
calendar year 1984. At that time, it 
would be nice to announce joyfully 
that we have gone over our $50 
million objective. From what I have 
seen and heard from all of the 
enthusiastic alumni of this great 
University, I feel confident that we 
will succeed. Historically, when 
Sewanee has been in need, its 
alumni have always helped. I am 
sure all alumni will want a hand in 
perpetuating the lofty standards we 
have sought to maintain over the 
years and that none would be 
content unless Sewanee were at the 
forefront of higher education in this

National Chairmen Warn 
Against Complacency 

Both Allan King, national 
chairman for the Century II Fund, 
and Gerald DeBlois, national vice- 
chairman, cautioned campaign 
workers and alumni about 
complacency in achieving 
Sewanee's Century II goal of $50 

Gerald DeBlois praised the 
enthusiastic response of the alurihi 
to his challenge grant and was very 
pleased that the entire $1,000,000 
had been used up in a little over six 
months, but he hastened to add that 
the raising of the alumni 
percentage was one thing, while 
raising the remainder of the 
$50,000,000 was quite another. 
"We cannot expect our friends 
and fellow alumni to make a 
contribution to this effort 
voluntarily," said Mr. DeBlois. 
"They must be asked. Even though 
we have been able to raise almost 
$33 million, much remains to be 

Allan King urged workers to 
renew their efforts in the months to 
come in order to bring about the 
successful conclusion of the Century 
II Fund and reminded those 
assembled: "In many instances you 
have to make more than one call. 
You may not be able to reach a 
prospect the first time, or the 
prospect may not be able to give you 
his or her undivided attention when 
you do call. Make sure you have the 
opportunity to discuss the entire 

Mr. King suggested that many 
times it is beneficial if someone 
accompanies a worker on a call. He 
pointed out that it shows the 
worker's as well as Sewanee's 
interest, and reaffirms that the 
worker believes enough in the 
program to make a special effort to 
present the case for the prospect's

Variety in Club Events 


It looks as though 1984 will be 
another exciting year for our club 
and we look forward to the active 
support of all Charleston alumni. 
Already this year we enjoyed the 
wonderful cocktail party that the 
Rhetts organized. We want to thank 
Sally and Edmund, C'69, for their 
personal contribution in having all 
of us as guests. 

In addition, Ed Wilkes, the new 
director of admissions, put on an 
excellent presentation for the 1984- 
1985 prospective students from 
local high schools. There are many 
local students who are interested in 
Sewanee, and we should really have 
a fine freshman group from 
Charleston. To round out January's 
activities, our Vice-Chancellor, Bob 
Ayres, gave a very interesting talk 

concerning his involvement in 
Christian outreach and missions. 
He was a guest of the diocese of 
South Carolina. 

On March 24 another oyster roast 
was held in Rock vi lie. This year it 
was in the village at Ben Hagood's 

One final note of thanks to Leize 
Glover, C79, for her tremendous 
help and leadership the past three 
years as our president. Her 
involvement in the club led to a 
renewed interest by many of us and 
again we thank her, 

I am pleased to have Richard 
Hutson, C79, vice-president, and 
Dick Mappus, C77, secretary/ 
treasurer, helping me this year.

Middle Georgia 

Twenty-five members of the 
Sewanee Club of Middle Georgia 
met March 16 at the Casses' home 
in Macon. This meeting, it should 
be noted, did occur in the winter, 
even though winter had but a few 
remaining days; thus the Middle 
Georgia club was established again 
as "regular." 

The members, consisting of 
parents of students and some 
graduates of recent years, milled 
about generally, rallying and 
discoursing. The president forgot to 
take photgraphs to make up for the 
photographs that had been botched 
at the previous meeting. But the 
president did give a brief report. 
The best part was that DuRoss 
Fitzpatrick, C'57, offered hiB 
country home near Tarversville for 
the next meeting. 

There followed a serious 
discussion about methods of raising 
Sewanee's name in the area 
secondary schools. Several members 
offered to visit guidance counselors 
and distribute Sewanee material as

its first function of the year. About 
forty-six alumni, parents, and

Rev. William A. Jones, H75, Bishop 
of Missouri, and expressed thanks 
for his support and interest in the

Fortunately, on Sunday, 
February 26, Professor Cocke was 
able to escape from St. Louis just 
prior to a major snowstorm. Only 
two years ago Professor Gil 
Gilchrist was marooned in his St.

worst snowstorm to hit the area in 
many years. He had been in St.

apparent that the St. Louis Club 
will have to break this jinx by 
moving future meeting dates to 
April or May.

A weekend in Sewanee, were you to 
visit between June 24 and July 29, 
should not pass without your 
hearing at least one concert (either 
Saturday or Sunday) by one of the 
three symphony orchestras of the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center. 

During those five weeks, students 
will study under a faculty and 
seven guest conductors, about 
whom center director Martha 
McCrory literally dances with 
enthusiasm. The flair of horns and 
flurry of winds and certainly the 
strings imitating moods of summer 
on the Mountain will be a daily, 
almost all-day, companion of the 
otherwise quieter-than-usual 

To the instrumental training are 
added opportunities for students in 
theory, composition, and 
conducting. And, of course, there 
are the chances to perform and to 
watch masters on stage as well. The 
latter is what a visitor will want to 

Among the guest conductors will 
be Dale Clevenger, principal horn 
with the famous Chicago 
Symphony; Laszlo Varga, former 

soloist and principal cellist with the 
New York Philharmonic; Patrick 
Strub, conductor of Stuttgart's 
C hri stophorus-Ensemble ; 
Springfield Symphony conductor 
Kenneth Kiesler; and Amerigo 
Marino, founding conductor of the 
Alabama Symphony. Additionally, 
two guest conductors will be 
working with the all-student 
Cumberland Orchestra — Jere Flint, 
conductor of the Atlanta Youth 
Orchestra, and William McNeiland 
from the Jacksonville Youth 

On three occasions, the SSMC 
will present three world premieres, 
all three written for and inspired by 
the Summer Music Center. 

Festival '84 will conclude the 
summer with an intensive array of 
performances — concertos, 
ensembles, and symphony 
concerts — beginning July 26 and 
ending July 29 with a concert 
combining the Sewanee Symphony 
and the Cumberland Orchestra. 

Further information about 
concerts may be obtained by calling 
the SSMC office at (615)598-5931,

A Winner 
for Hancock 

Swale, this year's Kentucky Derby 
winner, wears the colors of 
Claiborne Farm, and the master of 
Claiborne Farm is Seth Hancock, 
. C71. 

Claiborne Farm holds 25-percent 
interest in Swale in a six-owner 
partnership. Arranging a syndicate 
ownership has become a specialty 
for Hancock, who attracted much 
attention a few years ago when he 
singlehandedly put together a IB- 
million syndicate for Triple Crown 
winner, Secretariat. He gathered 
shareholders from as far away as 
England, France, and Japan. 

He also organized the $36-mi 1 lion 
syndicate for Devil's Bag, the horse 
many people thought had a better 
chance than Swale to win the 

Hancock is a third-generation 
Bluegrass horse breeder. His 
grandfather founded Claiborne 
Farm near Lexington, Kentucky, in 
1912 and made it famous. His 
father, Arthur B. Hancock, Jr., was 
one of the leading horse breeders in 
the world. Now Seth Hancock's 
success in acquiring and breeding 
top Thoroughbreds has put him 
firmly in the family tradition.

interest in the farm, is the former 
Waddell "Sis" Walker, who often 
visited Sewanee in her youth.

Many Due Credit for Giving Success 

Philanthropy may be defined in the 
words of the Nativity angels: "Glory 
to God in the highest, and on earth 
peace, good will toward men." Truly, 
your generous support of Sewanee is 
an expression of hope and good will 
in the persons of the men and 
women who study here. To our un- 
dergraduates, you offer the promise 
of lives built on a foundation of 
sound learning and time-tested wis- 
dom. To our seminarians, you offer 
the means to fulfill God's call in 
their lives and ministries. Over 
5,000 alumni and friends joined in 
Sewanee's accomplishments during 
the fiscal year just completed. Over 
5,000 alumni and friends joined to- 
gether in philanthropy, which is a 
moving expression of our Universi- 
ty's spirit. To each, Sewanee says 
"Thank You." 

1983-84 was another remarkable 
year for the University's fund-rais- 
ing efforts. While it will be some 
time before we outdo the excitement 
of '82-'83 and its multi-million dol- 
lar Crosby bequest, '83-'84 set its 
own record-making pace. A total of 
567 new donors took up the Sewa- 
nee cause. The 7,481 individual 
gifts represented a total of 
$6,528,878 in all categories, re- 
stricted and unrestricted. Alto- 
gether 618 additional alumni 
enjoyed the satisfaction of support- 
ing alma mater. Seven of these first- 
time or renewed alumni givers are 
members of the class of 1984, saying 
thanks for the four years they have 
just completed: 

Gerry DeBlois's million-dollar 
challenge stands as the single most 
remarkable story of '83-'84. Without 
prompting from professional fund- 
raisers, Gerry recognized that our 
$50-million campaign could not suc- 
ceed without the fullest alumni par- 
ticipation. His challenge, to give $3 
for every $1 in new or increased 
alumni giving, was quickly heard 
by enthusiastic Sewanee alumni. 
Above and beyond his monetary 
commitment, Gerry is giving un- 
stintingly of his time, as national 
chairman of the Century II Fund, to 
assure the happy completion of the 
campaign by December 31, 1984. 

Stewardship of time and talent is 
one of the distinctive features of the 
Century II effort. Our $35-million 
total, entering the campaign's final 
phase, is testimony to the faith 
friends and alumni have in the Se- 
wanee way. No one embodies that 
faith in Sewanee more than our 
Vice-Chancellor and President, Rob- 
ert M. Ayres, Jr., and it is often dif- 
ficult to thank Bob Ayres for being 
who he is. It is difficult for two rea- 
sons. First, Bob Ayres is so quick to 
share credit for success that it is 
hard to hold him still long enough 
to thank him fully for his own sin- 
gular labors on behalf of the institu- 
tion he loves, Second, it is 
impossible to enumerate the mani- 
fold ways in which Bob Ayres seems 
to be in all places at all times doing 
what needs to be done to push Cen- 
tury II over the top. 

No general fights alone and wins 
the day. Sewanee is indeed fortu- 
nate in the quality of its volunteer 
field officers. Our National Pattern 
and Leadership Gifts Committees 
are composed of a range of talent 
and energy which any campaign any- 
where might envy. 

General Chairman Allan C. King, 
C'51, is giving enthusiastic and 
committed leadership to the entire 
campaign effort. The Rt. Rev. John 
M. Allin, Presiding Bishop of the 
Episcopal Church, is serving as gen- 
eral co-chairman. In this capacity, 
he has traveled extensively for the 
campaign, telling the Sewanee story 
with a vividness which captivates. 
John W. Woods, C'54, and James W. 
Perkins, Jr., C'53, co-chairmen of' 
the National Pattern Gifts Commit- 
tee, along with Louis W. Rice, Jr., 
C'50, chairman of the National 
Leadership Gifts Committee, are 
giving the campaign the expertise 
and guidance which rise from busy, 
successful professional lives. 

In the next three months of the 
Century II campaign, alumni have 
the opportunity to speak loudly in 
support of Sewanee's most excep- 
tional feature — excellent teaching. 
Class agents and regional volun- 
teers will conduct personal visits 
and phonathons in nine metropoli- 

tan centers: Atlanta, Jacksonville, 
Birmingham, Chattanooga, Dallas/ 
Fort Worth, Houston, Memphis, 
Nashville, and New Orleans. Their 
goal is to secure alumni gifts to en- 
dow a $l-million alumni chair. As 
volunteers visit and telephone their 
fellow alumni, they will be seeking 
pledges of $1,000 to $25,000 payable 
over a five-year period. The dra- 
matic nature of Century II's final 
phase is the capstone of planning 
and implementation which began as 
early as 1978. 

Another crucial portion of our fi- 
nal phase is a challenge to Sewa- 
nee's twenty-seven diocesan owners. 
Each diocese is being asked to iden- 
tify individuals who will give to- 
ward endowing a diocesan chair at 
the million-dollar level. There can 
be no finer way for our diocesan 
owners to rededicate themselves to 
the vision of Sewanee's Episcopal 
founders: "We desire to build up a 
great University, which shall open 
its arms, far and wide, to literature, 
to science, to art, to knowledge, un- 
der the sacred sanction of religion 
as we have received it." The goal is 
bold, though no bolder than the vi- 
sion of those remarkable Episcopali- 
ans, meeting July 4, 1857, who 
pledged themselves "to secure to the 
South an institution of the very 
highest grade and raise up a body of 
scholars of whom no country need 
be ashamed." 

The Sixty-seventh General Con- 
vention, meeting in New Orleans, 
established the policy that each par- 
ish and mission of the dioceses 
within the United States shall give 
annually at least one percent of its 
net disposable budgeted income to 
one or more of the accredited semi- 
naries of its choice. 

As we seek support through the 
one-percent resolution, the School of 
Theology will be listening to its di- 
ocesan and parochial owners. We 
are indeed fortunate to have the 
part-time services of two clergy- 
alumni, the Rev. William Patten, 
now of Sewanee, and the Rev. Canon 
Knox Brumby of Tallahassee. These 
representatives of the School of The- 
ology will be visiting congregations

Grand Tbtal 













































within the owning dioceses, explain- 
ing the direction our mission is tak- 
ing and seeking to secure support, 
particularly through the one-per- 
cent program. 

Regarding alumni giving, partic- 
ular recognition should go to the 
class of 1920, which boasts a 100- 
percent giving record. The members 
of that class, represented by class 
agent Quintard Joyner, are a re- 
markable group whose loyalty to 
Sewanee is an example for all of us. 
Steve Puckette and class agent 
John Guerry are leading the class of 
1949 to spectacular achievement. 
The class has added nearly 25 per- 
cent to its record of participation 
over the last five years. This year 
the class records an impressive 74- 
percent participation, representing 
gifts totaling $43,475. 

We who live here and work for the 
University of the South are partners 
with 5,139 alumni, friends, parents, 
parishes, dioceses, foundations, and 
corporations in a venture of promise 
and possibility. We labor toward one 
end, that the Sewanee of today may 
inform the Sewanee of tomorrow. To 
the seventy members of the Chan- 
cellor's Society, the 340 members of 
the Vice-Chancellor's and Trustees' 
Society, the 221 members of the 
Quintard Society, the 1,468 mem- 
bers of the Century Club, and all 
other contributors, our faculty, staff, 
and students join in saying, "God 
Bless You." Your leadership, by sub- 
stance and personal presence, up- 
holds and strengthens the life of this 
community called Sewanee. 

Consider that we labored not for 
ourselves but for all them that seek 
learning. Ecclesiasticus 33:17.

Sewanee's first University carillon-

He became devoted keeper of the 
carillon soon after those fifty-six 
bells were lifted into Shapard Tower 
of All Saints' Chapel and since 
April 12, 1959, when they were dedi-

founder, Leonidas Polk.

you). You see, this Sewanee man

Even during the years he man- 
aged his family's business, the 
Coca-Cola plant in Tracy City, he 
would drive to Sewanee on New 
Year's Eve and mount the narrow 
steps into the tower to ring out the 
old year and ring in the new. He did 
such things simply because he loves 
the music and the carillon. 

As others have recognized, such 
work is symbolic of the spirit of 
learning that pervades Sewanee — 
that students will learn how to live 
and not just to make a living.

on the campus has contributed a 
special dimension to Sewanee's 
musical spirit and reputation. That 
contribution can hardly be meas- 
ured. His audiences include stu- 
dents strolling or biking across 
campus, travelers photographing 
All Saints' Chapel, professors at 
their desks, worshippers gathering 
on the lawn after a service. The 
bells do not intrude, they do not de- 
mand attention, they are like wings 
for our thoughts. 

"There have been many happy oc- 
casions," Mr. Bonholzer said, "such 
as recitals, weddings, special 
events, and when we play a 'peal' 
after a victory in football. Also 
many times the bells have been 
tolled at the death of someone who 

loved Sewanee." 

On Commencement Day, last May 
20, as the graduates processed from 
All Saints' Chapel, Mr. Bonholzer 
played the Peal Extraordinaire for 
the last time. 

"It was always a thrill and an 
honor to congratulate the graduates 
with a joyful sound and to wish 
them God-speed," he said. 

He has not only shown a love of 
playing, he has always found pleas- 
ure in sharing his knowledge of the 
bells. More than 120 students have 
had instruction on the carillon. 
Only one had ever played a carillon 
before entering Sewanee. Another 
young man told Mr. Bonholzer, "I 
did not even know what a carillon 
was when I came to Sewanee." To- 

day that young man teaches ii 
private school in Maryland. He haj 
found a donor who has contributed 
over a half-million dollars for a car 
illon. And who should that carillo 
neur be but that former student 
carillonneur from Sewanee. 

Mr. Bonholzer recalls that three 
former students were on the campm 
this past summer — one a physician 
from Birmingham, another a priest 
from Florida, and a musician from 
Atlanta. Others return periodically 
to hear the bells again. 

The Leonidas Polk Memorial Car 
illon is known all over the world as 
a very fine instrument. It has been 
played by artists from many coun- 
tries. Every one of them, says Mr. 
Bonholzer, has marveled at the tone 
and arrangement of the bells. The 
carillon is perfectly accoustically 

They were cast in 1951 at the fa- 
mous Paccard Foundery at Annecy 
in Southeastern France. The de- 
signer, Arthur Bigelow, tested the 
bells with tuning forks, assembled 
the carillon, and supervised the 

Mr. Bonholzer's fascination with 
carillons began years ago in 1929 
during a tour of Europe. He had al- 
ready studied music and had been 
University organist in Sewanee, 
where he had taken his first lesson 
on the pipe organ. After falling in 
love with the Bound of the bells in 
Belgium and Holland, he studied 
carillon under two teachers in 

He had been managing the plant 
in Tracy City for a decade when, i 
the mid-1950s, he learned that W. 
Dudley Gale HI, a Sewanee alum- 
nus and trustee, was planning to do 
nate a carillon to the University in 
memory of his great-grandfather. 

From that time there never 
see mod to be a question of who 
would become the official carillon- 
neur. "I was the only person in this 
whole area who could play it," said 
Mr. Bonholzer with his wry smile. 

He acknowledges that the Polk 
Carillon was a blessing to him. 
What he may fail to mention is 
what a blessing Albert Bonholzer 
has been to the University of the 
South and everyone fortunate 
enough to have heard him play the 

Development Move to Texas 

Lawrence Gibson, director of special 
resources in the development office, 
has moved to Houston where he will 
coordinate development activities in 
Texas and Louisiana. 

These two states have tradition- 
ally had very close ties with the 
University; they have strong Epis- 
copal constituencies; and the area 
offers great potential for both fund- 
raising and student recruitment. 

Mr. Gibson came to Sewanee in 
1975 from Texas Christian Univer- 
sity in Fort Worth, where he was 

engaged in development work. He 
had also earned a master's degree 
from TCU. 

The initial thrust of his work will 
be concerned with the Century II 
campaign, and in this regard he has 
hit Texas soil running. His Houston 
office will be listed in the telephone 
directory under the University of 
the South, and from Houston he ex- 
pects to intensify the development 
program, which will not end with 
the close of Century II. Mr. Gibson 


will also be working in the area

Full-time representative 

field have been used by a number! 
colleges and universities in their o 
velopment work. Since Sewanee is 
both a strong regional institution I 
well as one of national prominent 
location of development activities! 
Houston may be a particularly va( 
able effort.

DuBose Reader Now Available 

A selection of the writings of Wil- 
liam Porcher DuBose will be re- 
leased by the University in October. 
This collection, edited by Professor 
Donald S. Armentrout, is the first 
comprehensive printing of DuBose 
in nearly thirty years. 

DuBose, who is remembered in 
the Episcopal Church's calendar on 
August 18, held numerous posts at 
the University, most notably as 
chaplain and professor of ethics. He 
was the founder of the Order of 
Gownsmen and charted the course 
of Sewanee's Honor System. 

Long considered the Episcopal 
Church's foremost theologian, Du- 
Bose may be characterized as a 

Friends of the Library 

thoroughly Biblical thinker intent 
upon discerning the fullest implica- 
tion of the Church's expanding vi- 
sion in Word and Sacrament. 

The twenty-three selections in 
this DuBose Reader :give a thorough 
introduction to the range and scope 
of DuBose's thought. Professor Ar- 
mentrout has provided biographical 
and theological introductions which 
help place DuBose's work in the 
context of church history and theo- 
logical tradition. 

In his foreword, Reginald Fuller 
of the Virginia Theological Semi- 
nary commends the Universityfor 
undertaking this reissue of Du- 
Bose's work. 

Friends of the Library, the University of the South, invite you to 

— to stimulate interest in the collections and facilities of the library 
of the University of the South; 

— to provide an opportunity for those interested to participate in 
exhibits, programs, and publications; 

— to attract gifts of books, manuscripts, and other materials for en- 
richment of the resources of the library.

Lytle Honored by Governor 

Andrew Lytle, A'26, H'73, novelist 
and former editor of the Sewanee 
Review, was given a Special Cita- 
tion during the 1984 Governor's 
Awards in the Arts ceremony Tues- 
day, June 19, at the executive resi- 
dence in Nashville. Conferring the 
award, Governor Lamar Alexander 
said: "I salute the efforts and ap- 
plaud the energies of this outstand- 
ing Tennessean." Accepting the 
award, Lytle emphasized his belief 
in the crucial importance of crafts- 
manship. "We are lost and damned 
when we lose an understanding of 
craft. Once there were kingcraft, 
priestcraft, stagecraft, and the oth- 
ers. Now we inhabit a servile state; 
we are slaves to the machines; there 
is less and less true craftsmanship." 
Governor Alexander cited Lytle's 
own careful practice of the writer's 
craft. "That he has done so himself, 
and done so truthfully and well, 

makes his contribution to Tennes- 
see's cultural life special." 

Attending the ceremony from Se- 
wanee were editor of the Review 
George Core and his wife, Susan; 
Arts Commission member Douglas 
Paschall and his wife Rosemary who 
designed the covers for the Univer- 
sity's issue of Mr. Lytle's work; and 
Don DuPree, one of the coordinators 
of Sewanee's Lytle publication 

Lytle's novel The Velvet Horn and 
collection of short fiction Stories: 
Alchemy and Others have been reis- 
sued by the University of the South. 
His biography, Bedford Forrest and 
His Critter Company, was reissued 
this summer by Green Key Press, 
Seminole, Florida. Each of these 
works is obtainable through the 
University as listed elsewhere in 
this issue.

Essays Recall Rich Lectures 

One might take a text from Book 
Thirteen of the Iliad in seeking the 
most cogent epithet for Charles T. 
Harrison: Great teachers, though 
mortals, are conspicuous. For nearly 
thirty-five years as friend, advisor, 
and professor of English, Charles 
Harrison has brought conspicuous 
enrichment to life on Sewanee's 
mountain. His Olympian presence 
in the classroom was generous and 
loving. His pronouncements regard- 

ing literature, music, even the ethi- 
cal quality of cats, rose naturally 
from thorough consideration and 
comprehensive knowledge. The Uni- 
versity is proud to announce the 
publication of Dr. Harrison's col- 
lected essays in a volume entitled 
Shakespeare's Insistent Theme. To 
be released in December, this offer- 
ing carries a pre-publication price of

Rich Memories of Bishop Jones 

Louisiana's seventh bishop is 
known affectionately to many in Se- 
wanee as our bishop, wise preacher, 
genial story-teller, ready hand for 
any worthy project. Sewanee's for- 
mer chancellor has allowed memory 
to lead him on in a volume entitled 

That Reminds Me. From his child- 
hood in Woodville, Mississippi, 
through schooling and early minis- 
try, from Louisiana to Sewanee, this 
joyous account of large-souled living 
details the memories of one who has 
served gladly and well. 


Gilchrist Named Alfred Walter Negley Professor 

Gilbert F. Gilchrist, C'49, has be 
selected as the University's first 
Alfred Walter Negley Professor of 
Political Science. 

The endowed chair was estab- 
lished by the Brown Foundation of 
Houston, Texas, with a $1 million 
gift in memory of a Sewanee Acad- 
emy graduate (class of 1943). The 
late Mr, Negley was a business, 
civic, and government leader in 
Texas. He died in 1980. 

Professor Gilchrist first taught at 
Sewanee in 1951-52 and subse- 
quently taught at the Johns Hop- 
kins University where he received 

both his M.A. and Ph.D. He also 
studied for two years at the London 
School of Economics on a Fulbright 
Scholarship and a Rockefeller Foun- 
dation Scholarship. Sewanee has 
been his home since he joined the 
faculty as an assistant professor in 

Mr. Gilchrist was a member of the 
University's Board of Trustees from 
1966 to 1978 and currently serves 
on the Board of Regents' investment 
management committee. He was 
chairman of the political science de- 
partment for many years and is 
chairman of the Tonya Public Af- 

fairs Program. 

A popular professor among stu- 
dents and a familiar and enthusias- 
tic participant in productions of the 
Purple Masque, Mr. Gilchrist has 
been actively involved in University 
affairs over the years, and, as an ad- 
visor, active in several student 

He is a member of Phi Beta 
Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa,

New Faculty in College 

Glynne Wickham, visiting professor 
and Brown Foundation Scholar, is 
one of the thirteen new and visiting 
faculty members of the College who 
will be teaching during the Advent 

Glynne Wickham, internationally respected scholar on drama and the 
English theatre, talks with Fred Matthews, C'86, after a lecture in Gros- 
venor Common Room. 

His presence lent a certain luster 
to the early-semester activities (he 
gave lectures in addition to his 
teaching in September), for Dr. 
Wickham is a foremost authority on 
English theatre. He is professor 
emeritus of drama at the University 
of Bristol, England, and his re- 
search and directing have earned 
him an international reputation. 

New members of the faculty in- 
clude Antoinette Blum, assistant 
professor of French; Pamela L. Roys- 
ton, assistant professor of English; 

Timothy W. Shearon, assistant pro- 
fessor of psychology; Claudia Jacob, 
lecturer in German; John B. Koehl, 
instructor in mathematics; James 
R. Peters, instructor in philosophy; 
and Frederick M. Wilson, instructor 
in religion. The University band is 
being transformed into a woodwind 
ensemble under its new director, 
Andrew Budwig. 

Members of the faculty with first- 
semester appointments include Re- 
gina Birchem, assistant professor of 
biology; Suzi Gablik, visiting profes- 
sor of fine arts; T. Conley Powell, 
visiting associate professor of phys- 
ics; Thomas Van Brunt, lecturer in 
public speaking; and Homer C. 
Walker, Jr., instructor in physics. 

A Sterling Class of 1988 

by Ed Wilkes 

It was about this time last year that 
I was introduced to many of you 
through the Sewanee News. I 
thought it might be appropriate to 
report to you . . . one year later. 

All in all, this past year has been 
a good one, albeit very hectic and 
busy. We have recently welcomed 
our new freshman class — the Class 
of '88— and I would like to tell you a 
bit about this class as I review the 
admissions year. 

Through the efforts of a lot of good 
people this past year — and espe- 
cially a hardworking and conscien- 
tious admissions staff — we received 
895 freshman applications for ad- 
mission. This is the second largest 
number of applications received in 
the history of Sewanee admissions 
(the best year was 914 applications 
in 1974). 

We are very pleased with the 
quality of this class. Academically, 
thiB appears to be the best freshman 
class to enroll since 1979. The aver- 
age high school grade-point average 
is 3.20 and the average SAT score is 
1109 (542-verbal, 567-math). Both 
of these figures represent increases 
over the previous year, with the SAT 
average up almost 16 points. Sixty- 
five percent of the class members 

were ranked in the top quarter of 
their respective graduating classes. 

Geographically the Class of '88 
represents twenty-five different 
states, two foreign countries, and 
Puerto Rico. Eighty-eight percent of 
the class is from the South, 23 per- 
cent from Tennessee. 

A number of our constituents 
have been very helpful to us by 
bringing good students to our atten- 
tion. We appreciate your help and 
hope that it will continue. Many of 
you are aware that the number of 
high school age students is decreas- 
ing rapidly and will continue to do 
so well into the 1990s. For this rea- 
son, I hope you will be aware of out- 
standing students in your local area 
(especially high school juniors and 
seniors) who might be interested in 
Sewanee. If you will provide us with 
their names, addresses, and high 
schools, we will be happy to send 
them information about Sewanee. A 
form has been included with this 
edition of the Sewanee News if you 
wish to send us the names of poten- 
tial prospects. 

Several alumni and clergymen 
brought groups of students to the 
Mountain this past year to see Se- 
wanee and talk with the admissions 

staff. We welcome these groups and 
simply ask that you notify our office 
a few days in advance of these 

Before I close, I would like for you 
to know the members of Sewanee's 
hardworking and dedicated admis- 
sions staff. 

The assistant directors are Lee 
Ann Afton, C'79, Mary Ellen 
Blount, C'80, Tom Macfie, C'80, and 
Don Pippen, C'76. Our office man- 
ager is Malinda Sutherland, and our 
data processer is Mellie Watts. 

Tom Macfie joined our staff this 
August. He has taught school for 
two years in New England and has 

served as assistant director of a 
camp for boys in Maine for the past 
several summers. We are delighted 
to have Tom working with us this 

This has been a successful year 
for admissions, and we are looking 
forward to the coming year with en- 
thusiasm and optimism. Through 
the efforts of our committed admis- 
sions staff and the valuable assist- 
ance of our Sewanee friends, the 
Class of '89 could be even better! 

Ed Wilkes is beginning his second 
year as director of admissions for 
the College of Arts and Sciences.

(^Associated Alumni 

Dean John Booty prepares for the opening of the School of Theology in 
Hamilton Hall in his new office. 

Summer Move to Hamilton 

The School of Theology's newly- 
renovated facilities in Hamilton 
Hall are already contributing to a 
renewed enthusiasm among faculty 
members and students. The spa- 
cious hallways, offices, and class- 
rooms give the Seminary a different 
air, certainly a brighter environ- 
ment for study and work. 
The move (actually, a score of sep- 

arate moves) was accomplished in 
August in time for the opening of 
the Advent semester. 

In addition to providing more spa- 
cious facilities for the residential 
program, the move to the former lo- 
cation of the Academy provides 
space in several buildings for a 
range of theological and church out- 
reach programs. 

St. Luke's Convocation 

Alumni attending St. Luke's Convo- 
cation and the DuBose Lectures Oc- 
tober 16 and 17 will have a grand 
opportunity to tour the new facili- 
ties of the School of Theology in 
Hamilton Hall. 

The alumni reception and ban- 
quet, following Evening Prayer, will 
be held on October 17 in Cravens 
Hall near Hamilton. Those return- 
ing for the homecoming will also not 
want to miss the alumni business 
luncheon (after the Eucharist) on 
October 17 at the Sewanee Inn. 

The DuBose Lectures will be held 
on the evening of October 16 after 
the banquet and on the morning 
and afternoon of October 17. B. 
Davie Napier will lecture on "Old 
Testament Guidelines for Human 

Dr. Napier is professor of Bible 
and ministry at Yale University, 
from which he holds both the B.D. 
and Ph.D. The son of missionary 
parents, he was educated at Nan- 
king, Shanghai, Kobe, and Bir- 
mingham, Alabama. He was 
ordained in the Congregational 
Church upon graduation from Yale 
Divinity School and taught Old Tes- 
tament studies there for twenty 
years before going to Stanford Uni- 
versity as dean of the chapel and 
professor of religion in 1966. He be- 
came president of the Pacific School 
of Religion in 1972, then returned to 
Yale in 1980. He has written nine 
books and numerous articles. He 
was the Beattie lecturer in Sewanee 
in 1964. 

Dr. Elmen Teaching Ethics 

The Rev. Paul H. Elmen, retired 
professor of moral theology at Sea- 
bury- Western Theological Semi- 
nary, has joined the School of 
Theology faculty this year as profes- 
sor of Christian ethics. 

The author of numerous articles 
and books on ethics and morality, 
Mr. Elmen spent twenty-two years 
on the faculty of Seabury- Western. 
He is also former president of the 
American Society of Christian Eth- 
ics. His visiting professorships in- 

cluded a year at St. Augustine 
College, Oxford. 

Mr. Elmen did his undergraduate 
work at Northwestern University 
and received a Ph.D. from Harvard 
Divinity School before entering the 
priesthood in 1956. He is canoni- 
cally resident in the Diocese of 

Joseph Monti, who has taught 
previously at the School of Theology,

Homecoming '84: 
A Full Cup 

Stand back for Homecoming 1984. It 
needs room. 

Start with the alumni dinner 
dance on Friday, October 26. Catch 
the annual alumni meeting Satur- 
day morning. Grab some lunch and 
visit the alumni Hospitality Tent. 
Parade with your class to the Rose- 
Hulman game at McGee Field, and 
then settle down with your reunion 
party. Do those major things, and 
you are still tasting only part of Se- 
wanee Homecoming, albeit a 
healthy serving. 

Reunions have grown from no 
more than cocktail parties and din- 
ners to a variety of gatherings. For 
instance, this year the class of 1949, 
led by reunion chairman John 
Guerry, is planning a corporate 
communion at All Saints' Chapel 
(all classes are invited) followed by 
a class breakfast at the Sewanee 
Inn and then a reunion luncheon at 
the Bishop's Common. The reunion 
party and buffet dinner will be held 
at the Sewanee Inn. 

The big reunion years are the fif- 
tieth for the class of 1934, headed by 
"Doc" Cravens and Morey Hart, and 
the twenty-fifth for the class of 
1959, led by Tony Gooch. The class 
of 1929, headed by Billy Schoolfield, 
will be holding a fifty-fifth reunion. 
The fifty-fifth idea was christened 
last year when John Crawford gath- 
ered several members of the class of 
1928 for a dinner. 

AH alumni are urged to register 
as early as 10 a.m. Friday, October 

21 — to take full advantage of the 
host of events. You will need a pass 
from registration to be served in the 
Hospitality Tent. By the way, the 
tent will include a band, and the re- 
freshments are free to pass-holders. 

Since it was established a couple 
of years ago, the alumni parade has 
become the best way to get to the 
football game, rain or shine. 
Alumni gather and march with 
their classes. Student organizations 
contribute the floats. 

If your athletic tastes run to dis- 
tance running, soccer, or basketball, 
check the schedule. There is some- 
thing for just about everyone. 



Gathering Support in the Clubs 

St. Louis 

Members of the Sewanee Club of St. 
Louis gathered at the home of Jim 
Buckles, C'81, on August 11 for a 
backyard party attended by about 
thirty-five alumni, wives, students, 
and parents. 

Retiring president Jess B. Cheat- 
ham, C'Bl, introduced the new slate 
of officers that included president 
Mike Powers, C'66; Jack Lauless, 
C'81; and secretary-treasurer Jim 
Buckles, C'81. 

A major objective of the club in 
1985 will be to assist the College 
admissions office in making con- 
tacts with high school counselors in 
order to spread the word about Se- 
wanee to prospective students. We 
hope this effort will pay off in 
seeing a larger number of students 
from the St. Louis area attend Se- 
wanee in future years. 

Two successful, well-attended so- 
cial functions in 1984 give impetus 
to plans to expand the club's role 
with local alumni and support for 
the University.

San Antonio 

Bragging rights for South Texas 
were on the line June 16 as the Se- 
wanee Club of San Antonio battled 
the Washington and Lee boys in a 
Softball game at the TMI playing 
field. As is their style, W&L fielded 
a "loaded" team comprised of five 
W&L alumni and four members of 
the San Antonio Lacrosse Club (all 
of whom admitted to never having 
heard of W&L). Still lacking a 
catcher, the W&L club borrowed 
Steve Sinclair, C70, to round out 
their side. Spotting W&L a quick 
11-0 lead in the first inning, Sewa- 
nee battled back to lose only 17-12. 
Twenty-five alumni came out to 
support Sewanee, including Reagan 
Houston, C'70; Gregg Robertson, 
C'78; Dale Weyand, C'82; Heidi 
Harnisch, C'80; and Marilyn King 
Boldrick, C'79. For this fall the club 
planned a keg party in September, a 
dinner in October, and a reception 
for high school seniors later in the

Mike Powers, C'66; Vice-President Jack Lauless, C'81; and Secretary- 
Treasurer Jim Buckles, C'81. 

Among those attending the August party of the St. Louis Club were, from 
left, Bill Johnston, C'58; Mrs. Richard Wulf, wife of Richard Wulf, A'44; 
and Morgan Soaper, C'71 . 


An alumni cookout was held on Au- 
gust 12 at the home of Bill Maho- 
ney, C'65, and about twenty-five 
alumni and friends discovered the 
delight of Mahoney's barbecued 

Along with Eugene Watson, C'73, 
and Mrs. James C. Sims, mother of 
Carlton Sims, C'85, Mahoney had 
arranged a reception for prospective 
students just prior to the cookout. 
About twenty high school students 
attended and heard Don Pippen of 
the College admissions office give a 
slide presentation about Sewanee. 
The students were from Selma and 
Opelika as well as Montgomery. 


The Sewanee Club of Tallahassee/ 
Thomasville held a summer cookout 
on June 16 through the skillful or- 
ganization of Pam Jordan, C'81; 
Ruth Ann McDonald, C'81; and 
Marshall Cassedy, C76. 

The twenty-eight persons attend- 
ing the gathering included a good 
mixture of recent and "older" gradu- 
ates. The oldest was Jack Morton, 
C'33. Alumni Director Beeler Brush 
spoke about the ways the club can 
assist the University and brought 
everyone up to date on admissions 
and the Century II Campaign. 


The Sewanee Club of Chicago held 
its organizational meeting on Fri- 
day, June 8, at the University Club 
of Chicago, The Galerie Room on 
the top floor of the club afforded a 
beautiful view of Lake Michigan to 
the forty persons in attendance. 

Midway through the reception, 
Bill Sholten, C'79, president-elect of 
the club, introduced by-laws and the 
proposed new officers to those gath- 
ered there. John Nichols, C'59, a 
member of the club's executive 
board, made a motion that both the 
by-laws and the officers be approved 
by acclamation. His motion passed. 

Bill Sholten thanked everyone for 
attending and had special thanks 
for Nick Babson, C'68; Colwell 
Whitney, C'73; Marc and Lauren 
Liberman, C'74 and C'75; Atlee Val- 
entine, C'78; and Paul Alvarez, 
C'61, for helping the club off to a 
strong start. 

Beeler Brush, C'68, the executive 
director of the Associated Alumni, 
spoke to the gathering about activi- 
ties that are important to Sewanee 
and the club. He explained that the 
purposes of any alumni club are 
threefold: To support the institution, 
to gain recognition for the institu- 
tion within the community, and to 
foster goodwill and friendship 
among its members. Support of the 
University could take several forms. 

The next social gathering of the 
club was for the Chicago Symphony 
Orchestra concert at Ravinia on 
July 29. Tentative plans had also 
been made for a gathering for the 
Cubs-Braves game on August 25. 


The Sewanee Club of Mobile held a 
party on July 27 at the Dew Drop. 

In addition to gathering members 
for a short business meeting, the 
party (accompanied by plenty of 
food) was intended to give current 
students a chance to get career in- - 
formation from Mobile alumni. 


The Sewanee Club of Greenville had 
the best of both the barbecue and 
the baseball at a joint gathering 
with Washington and Lee alumni on 
August 26. The organizer was Chip 
Hunt, C'77. 

About thirty Sewanee alumni and 
their guests clearly outnumbered 
the W&L folks, and Sewanee de- 
feated W&L on the field 5-4. The 
hero of the softball game was Pat 
Apperson, C'83, who drove in the 
winning run with two out in the 
bottom of the ninth. 

Cheering from the sidelines were 
Charles E. Thomas, C'27, and David 
Weinstein, C'81, who was on 
crutches recovering from knee 


Veterans Give Teams Class 

A solid corps of returning letter- 
men, nine on offense and six start- 
ers on defense, have been joined by 
some impressive rising stars to lead 
the Sewanee Tigers this season. ~— — - 

Improvement on last year's 5-4 
record will be a formidable task 
against the likes of Earlham Col- 
lege of Indiana and Samford Uni- 
versity of Birmingham, two 
additions to the schedule. An old op- 
ponent returning to the schedule is 
Hampden-Sydney of Virginia. 
Rhodes College is really archrival 
Southwestern at Memphis. The 

Homecoming match will be against 
Rose-Hulman on October 27. 

Ail-American wide receiver David 
Pack, C'85, teams with Lee Pride, 
C'85, and Steve Sullins, C'87, to 
give Sewanee one of the finest re- 
ceiving corps in Division III foot- 
ball. Experience at quarterback and 
runningback behind a line led by 
all-conference center Dan Rather is 
giving those tougher opponents 
plenty to think about. 

Alan Logan, a graduate of 
Muskingum College and Miami of 
Ohio, has joined the Sewanee staff

as an offensive- and defensive-line 
coach. He has been an assistant

derson, C'72, and Dewey Warren. 





Augusts "Gus" Smith, A, of Greenville. South 
Carolina, was awarded an American Legion 
Medal during Memorial Day

Lawrence Butcher, C'85, takes a hill 
to lead Sewanee's efforts in its an- 
nual Cross Country Invitational. 


Coach John McPherson haB a strong 
men's team despite some graduation 
losses. He is relying heavily upon 
Lawrence Butcher, C'85; Paul Pfef- 
ferkorn, C'86; Scott Stanley, C'86; 
Amy Frishman, C'85; Allen Ether- 
idge, C'88; and Randy Lancaster, 

Most of the best runners on the 
women's team are still a couple of 
years away from graduation and 
getting stronger, says Coach Cliff 
Afton. Virginia Brown, C'87, Bora 
Liggett, C'87, and Irish Miller, C'86, 
are out front. 

Next month Sewanee will host 
the NCAA Division III Regional 
Cross Country Championships for 
both men and women. 

Field Hockey 

The women's field hockey team en- 
tered the season with a nine-game 
winning streak and one of the 
strongest outlooks of any Sewanee 

To keep the ball rolling (and into 
opponents' goals), Coach Jeannie 
Fissinger is relying on some fine re- 
turning players — Elizabeth Estes, 
C'85; Jennifer Cooke, C'86; Virginia 
Hipp, C'86; Missy Boyd, C'87; and 
veteran goalie Marcella Taylor, 


It will be difficult for the Tigers to 
improve on their best record ever 
(13-5-1) in this, their twentieth, soc- 
cer season, but Coach Peter Haley is 
very optimistic. 

Three All-South players return- 
ing are Dan Gould, C'85, captain 
and sweeperback; Peter York, C'86, 
bIbo a captain and a mid-field 
player; and Ben Reddick, C'87, at 
forward. All-conference player Chris 
Smith, C'85, is back at forward. 


The women's volleyball team is 
coming off its first winning season 
but is facing a challenging schedule 
of prominent Division III schools. 

Coach Nancy Ladd says the team 
is relying on finesse more than 
strength, with freshmen playing 
key roles alongside veterans like 
Elizabeth Epps, C'86, and Karyn 
Pennington, C'86.

A Tribute to Robert S. Lancaster on His 75th Birthday 

The following toast was given by 
Andrew Lytic before the large party 
of well-wishers who gathered on 
July 9 at Rebel's Rest to help Robert 
S. Lancaster, C'34, H'79, emeritus 
professor and dean, celebrdte his 
seventy-fifth birthday. 

I want to raise this tumbler to an 
old friend on his seventy-fifth birth- 
day. The Old Testament only allows 
three score and ten. He's overgrown 
that; so he must be a Christian, a 
Christian in no great hurry to re- 
ceive his final reward. Obviously 
there are things to see and do, in his 
present surroundings. He used to 
look for the big flights to come over, 
in the boat or elsewhere, but he and 
his Turtle Dove are now flying on 
their own. One day they are on the 
Gulf, the next in Alaska. I just hope 
prudence doesn't desert them, else 
they might fly out of range of this 
mountain top altogether. 

He is a mountain man, with all a 
mountain man's virtues and none of 
his vices. He may have picked up 
one or two in the low grounds 
among his hunting companions, but 
back on the top of the mountain the 
air soon blows him clean. 

As Dean he didn't try to remake 
the University in his own image. He 
served the faculty in its proper call- 
ing, and that is to guide and teach 
the shining countenance of igno- 

rance. But if any student was un- 
justly deprived of his dues, he did 
not hesitate to exercise his proper 
authority. He knew that the teacher 
exists for the student, even the ten 
o'clock scholar, who more often than 
not make up those alumni who later 
on concretely sustain their alma 
mater. Together the learned and the 
learning make the college. 

This alliance, he has felt, must be 
upheld even in its follies. Folly is al- 
ways with us, but learning and jus- 
tice will survive if the institution 
does. I've felt this is a strong part of 
his policy. At times I have felt he 
has condoned folly as the least of the 
evils vexing the administration, for 
so long as a university as institu- 
tion stands it will take more than 
folly to knock it down. All of this he 
performs out of his charity and hu- 
mor, his human almost his greatest 
property, not just a part of him but 
in all his parts, well, almost all his 

Personally, and notice I've not 
brought myself in until now, aware 
as I am that many toasters and in- 
troducers tend to introduce them- 
selves and not their proper 
subject— But to speak in the future 
tense— If I were ever to get caught 
in a barroom brawl, I can't think of 
anybody I'd rather have at my back 
than "Red" Lancaster. And on that I 
will empty this tumbler.

Bill Spencer: 1984 Distinguished Alumnus 

William M. Spencer, C'44, a Bir- 
mingham business leader, was 
elected this fall the Distinguished 
Alumnus of 1984. 

He is the third recipient of the 
award, and coincidentally, he and 
the first two honorees, Edwin I. 
Hatch, C'33, and Armistead I. Sel- 
den, Jr., C'42, all trace their roots to 
the same area of central Alabama 
called the Black Belt. 

Mr. Spencer's family is from Gal- 
lion, only a few miles from the 
hometowns of Mr. Hatch and Mr. 
Selden. The Black Belt has a purple 

During Homecoming Mr. Spencer 
took some obvious delight in return- 
ing to be honored and to address the 
October 26 annual alumni banquet. 

Just as his predecessors had done, 
Mr. Spencer claimed continuing 
benefits from the education that Se- 
wanee, its system, and its professors 
(Ware, Bruton, Gass, Kay den, 
Baker) provided in rich doses. A 
broad, basic education is more im- 
portant today than ever, he said, 
particularly for persons aspiring to 

"The important point about a lib- 
eral education is that when great 
technological changes are made, 
you, as a product of that education, 
are prepared. You at least know 
where to look to get the answers 
you need," he said. 

Mr. Spencer is living proof of the 
maxim. A former president and now 
chairman of the board of Motion In- 
dustries of Birmingham, he has re- 
cently turned much of his attention 
toward an endeavor that is stretch- 
ing the boundaries of medical sci- 
ence. He is handling the business 
and fundraising efforts of the Mo- 
lecular Engineering Association. 
This new organization was formed 
by microbiologists at the University 
of Alabama at Birmingham who 

wish to commercialize a number of 
their research efforts. Their devel- 
opment of monoclonal antibodies for 
the early detection of certain kinds 
of cancers may lead to the creation 
of a diagnostic test kit. Other scien- 
tists are working on recombinant 
DNA, a controversial but promising 
area for medical advancement. 

"This is an exciting time. A lot of 
basic research is being done in Bir- 
mingham, where we have one of the 
best regional cancer centers," said 
Mr. Spencer, who majored in chem- 
istry at Sewanee and even attended 
medical school for a time. 

Mr. Spencer's business career was 
delayed a while even after medical 
school, for he served four years in 
the Marine Corps, seeing World 
War II combat in the Central Pa- 
cific. He won a Bronze Star and 
completed his service as a captain. 

In 1946 he joined the Owens- 
Richards Company (later named 
Motion Industries, Inc.), marketer 
of bearings and power transmission 
equipment. He is a partner with 
Caldwell Marks, C'42. Within six 
years he was elected president of 
the firm and in 1973 became chair- 
man of the board of directors. Dur- 
ing these years this rather small, 
family business grew into a multi- 
million dollar national corporation. 

Along the way he studied at Har- 
vard University's School of Busi- 
ness Administration. Also during 
these years, Mr. Spencer increased 
his involvement in business enter- 
prises and civic and charitable orga- 
nizations. He was president of the 
Greater Birmingham Chamber of 
Commerce, president of the Bir- 
mingham Festival of Arts, presi- 
dent and chairman of the board of 
the Baptist Hospitals Foundation of 
Birmingham, president of the Ala- 
bama Safety Council, co-chairman 
of the United Appeal, and co-chair-

sented to Mr. Spencer as Distinguished Alumnus of 1984. The desk o 
presented by Jack L. Stephenson, C'49, president of the Associated 

man of the Birmingham Symphony 

Of late he has become a trustee of 
the Greater Birmingham Founda- 
tion, a charitable organization, and 
a board member of the Birmingham 
Museum of Arts. He has completed 
a term on the board of Health Serv- 
ices Foundation, which provides a 
variety of services to the Medical 
School of the University of Alabama 

He was president of St. Vincent's 
Hospital, a member of the Mayor's 
Advisory Committee for Birming- 
ham, and an executive committee- 
man of the Southern Research 
Institute. The list goes on. 

A few of the companies for which 

Ten Year Self Study 

he has served as director include 
the Alabama Great Southern Rail- 
road Company, AmSouth Bankcor- 
poration, Genuine Parts Company, 
and the Mead Corporation. 

He was a member of the Young 
Presidents Organization until man- 
ditory retirement and then became 
a member of the Chief Executives 
Organization. He is also active in 
St. Mary's-on-the-Highlands Epis- 
copal Church. 

Mr. Spencer entered Sewanee 
after graduation from Baylor School 
and distinguished himself, being 
elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Omicron 
Delta Kappa, and Blue Key. He is a 
Phi Delta Theta.

For more than a year the Univer- 
sity has been involved in a "self- 
study" mandated every ten years by 
the Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Schools. 

The study is actually combined 
with a self-study at the School of 
Theology coordinated through the 
Association of Theological Schools. 
Therefore, all areas of the Univer- 
sity and its operations are being 
carefully scrutinized. 

The first, and current, phase, 
which leads up to a "site visit" next 
March 3-6, is being carried out by 
eleven committees made up of fac- 
ulty members and administrators. 
It is their responsibility to look 
carefully at the current facilities 
and operations and make recom- 
mendations for improvement. 

A steering committee provides 
overall control for these ten other 
committees: Mission and Purpose, 
Organization and Administration, 
Educational Programs, Financial 
i, Faculty and Research, 

Library, Student Services, Physical 
Resources, Special Programs, and 
Strategic Planning. 

Their reports will be submitted to 
the two visiting committees — a 
chairman and eight persons se- 
lected by the Southern Association 
and, in the case of the School of 
Theology, three persons represent- 
ing various theological schools, 

Following their visit, these com- 
mittees will submit reports evaluat- 
ing the programs and making 

The University administration 
believes that the recommendations 
of its own committees will be the 
most important result of the study, 
and it is determined that the self- 
study proposals will not be shelved 
when the study is completed. 

Plans are being made to review 
the recommendations, assign priori- 
ties to these recommendations, es- 
tablish time frames for 
implementing them, and monitor 
the work. 


The Advantages of a Small Liberal Arts College 

The following essay is a revision of 
an address made by W. Brown Pat- 
terson, dean of the College of Arts 
and Sciences, to visiting prospective 
students and their parents on a spe- 
cial "Sewanee Experience" Day this 

by W. Brown Patterson 

Twenty years ago, American higher 
education was in an expansive 
phase. Universities, especially 
state-supported institutions, grew 
at a dramatic rate. High rise librar- 
ies, laboratories, and dormitories 
were built to accommodate a flood 
of students. New departments, ma- 
jors, and degree programs were de- 
vised. The liberal arts college, 
especially the small, church-related 
college with its traditional curricu- 
lum, was widely viewed as a relic of 
the past, unlikely to flourish, per- 
haps not destined to survive in com- 
petition with the giants of the 

Despite gloomy predictions about 
the future of the liberal arts college, 
many such colleges are, in fact, en-

joying more success in attracting 
students and material support than 
at any time in their previous his- 
tory. Why is this? 

A basic reason, I think, is that 
many people have looked at the ov- 
ergrown sector of higher education 
and have found it wanting. Writers 
on educational subjects are begin- 
ning to point out important flaws in 
the way most universities educate 
undergraduates. A recent federal 
panel on American higher educa- 
tion has expressed deep concern 
about the "erosion" of liberal 

Among the criticisms made of 
American institutions of higher 
learning is that admissions stand- 
ards are often shockingly low. 
Sometimes a high school diploma is 
all that is needed to be admitted to 
a college or university and some- 
times not even that. Students are 
admitted without an adequate back- 
ground to pursue college-level 
courses. Many institutions teach es- 
sentially high school courses — re- 
mediation courses, they are 
frequently called — to a significant 
proportion of their students. This 
does not make for a stimulating in- 
tellectual experience for those well- 
prepared for college. 

It is frequently true that aca- 
demic requirements are few in 
number and easy to evade. Courses 
require little effort; grading stand- 
ards are low; cheating is common. 
There seems to be an implicit con- 
tract that four years of residence 
will result in a degree. Many fac- 
ulty members, especially, it seems, 
those best known to the academic 
community at large, spend little 
time in teaching and advising un- 
dergraduates. Their teaching loads 
are light and their outside commit- 
ments are many. As a result, teach- 
ing undergraduates is frequently 
left to graduate students who are 
very often harried by other de- 
mands on their time. The intellec- 
tual pleasures of teaching are in 
danger of being lost, and students 
are missing out on relationships 
which could be of the greatest im- 
portance to their intellectual and 
personal development. 

These are serious criticisms, but 
almost no one familiar with the 
state of American higher education 
would deny their validity. To these, 
I would add three more. Students 
are often allowed or even encour- 
aged to take a mish-mash of courses 
without any discernible relation to 
one another and without any over- 
all objectives in view. Even in their 
majors they are not asked to 
achieve any grasp of general princi- 
ples or to demonstrate their masr 
tery of fundamental theories and 
techniques. Varsity sports in all too 
many institutions are for semi- 
professionals only — young people 
who are brought to the campuses 
especially to play particular sports, 
sometimes despite their lack of aca- 

demic preparation for college. As a 
result, sports become an activity 
largely unrelated to the institu- 
tion's educational goals. The aca- 
demic community in many 
institutions is, in any case, not one 
but many. What seems to happen is 
that the larger the student body, 
the smaller and more homogeneous 
the student groups within it. The 
sense of community is lost among a 
welter of social, preprofessional, po- 
litical, athletic, and racial groups 
within the institution. 

The small, liberal arts college 
cannot offer everything its larger 
counterparts can offer. There are 
inevitably courses, departments, de- 
gree programs, and facilities avail- 
able at other institutions which will 
not be found at a place like Sewa- 
nee. But liberal arts colleges, at 
least some of them, are succeeding 
in doing many of the most impor- 
tant tasks in higher education bet- 
ter than the larger universities. 

To take this college as an exam- 
ple, we select our students very 
carefully from among a considera- 
ble number of applicants to ensure 
that the student body of one thou- 
sand is made up of the best quali- 
fied, most highly motivated, and 
most talented of those who are in- 
terested in coming here. Our aca- 
demic requirements are high. We 
spell out just what we think an edu- 
cated person needs to learn in lan- 
guage and literature, math and 
science, history and social sciences, 
philosophy and religion, and the 
fine arts before concentrating on a 
single subject. We expect students 
to pass a comprehensive examina- 
tion in their major fields before 
graduation. Sewanee's grading 
practices are strict; we did not expe- 
rience grade inflation in the 1970's 
as many colleges did. Our Honor 
System, administered by students, 
is effective in preventing cheating 
and in developing personal integ- 
rity among our students. Faculty 
members at Sewanee are, by and 
large, devoted to teaching under- 
graduates and spend most of their 
time in the classroom and office or 
in other places and gatherings 
where students have access to them. 
At Sewanee all students have the 
opportunity to play sports; there are 
no students on so-called athletic 
scholarships. Morale among ath- 
letes is high; many of them have 
compiled distinguished academic 
records. Our community, made up 
of students, faculty, administrative 
staff, and residents, has an agreea- 
ble variety, but it is still one com- 
munity of learning. Sewanee is a 
friendly, open, and accepting com- 
munity in which anyone can get to 
know anyone else, simply by mak- 
ing an effort. There are a great 
many clubs, organizations, activi- 
ties, and informal groups, but there 
are no rigid divisions. Sewanee stu- 
dents are proud to be part of the 
University of the South and cherish 

the relationships they have formed 

It is for reasons such as these that 
the small, liberal arts college can 
continue to attract more than its 
share of the brightest and most in- 
teresting students in America to- 
day. Unlike the bulk of the 
institutions of higher education, the 
small, liberal arts college at its best 
can offer rigor, balance, and 

I believe, moreover, that a college 
like Sewanee can do even more 
than this. As a liberal arts college, 
Sewanee offers an education in hu- 
mane values as well as in market- 
able skills. These are some of the 
things which four years here bring 
to a Sewanee student: 

— A sense of being within a his- 
torical tradition reaching back 
not just to the Civil War era, 
when we were founded, but to 
Oxford and Cambridge, which 
nourished us in our infancy, to 
the other great universities of 
Europe, and to the ancient cen- 
ters of civilization in Greece 
and Rome. 

— An awareness of a cultural 
heritage which includes Eng- 
lish and American literature, 
literature in ancient and mod- 
ern languages, the artistic and 
cultural achievements of West- 
ern civilization, and the Chris- 
tian tradition as mediated 
through the Episcopal Church 
and the Anglican Communion. 
— An experience of moving 
from the familiar to the unfa- 
miliar as students encounter 
other languages, cultures, and 
religions in their readings or in 
study abroad, or as they make 
discoveries for themselves in 
the natural and social sciences, 
or as they meet students and 
faculty members from other re- 
gions and countries. 
— A deeper understanding of 
what human beings of all cul- 
tures have in common: the limi- 
tations, possibilities, and 
prospects which we share; the 
psychological, material, and 
spiritual needs which human 
beings have; the social and po- 
litical problems which we as 
members of the human family 
can help to solve. 
— A reasoned approach to fit- 
ting one's own talents, inter- 
ests, and qualifications, as 
developed by a liberal arts cur- 
riculum, to a possible career; 
this will usually entail the ac- 
quiring of practical experience 
or further training; seeking the 
advice and counsel of.faculty, 
staff, alumni, speakers, and 
representatives of businesses 
and the professions; and coming 
to understand one's deepest 
concerns and aspirations. 
I would add that Sewanee's being a

Honors on Founders' Day 

Tennessee Governor Lamar Alex- 
ander delivered the University 
Founder's Day address and was one 
of four persons to receive honorary 
degrees during the Founders' Day 
Convocation October 8 in All 
Saints' Chapel. 

Alexander received an honorary 
degree along with Luther H. Foster, 
president emeritus of Tuskegee In- 
stitute, Alabama; the Rt. Rev. Stan- 
ley F. Hauser, Suffragan Bishop of 
West Texas; and Glynne W. G. 
Wickham, professor emeritus of 
drama at the University of Bristol, 
England. The Rt. Rev. Furman C. 
Stough, Chancellor of the Univer- 
sity and bishop of Alabama, con- 
ferred the degrees. 

Alexander, in his second term as 
governor, is very active in the Na- 
tional Governors' Conference and 
has served as vice-chairman of the 
President's Commission on Inter- 
governmental Relations. He has 
also served as the chairman of the 
policy commission of the Republican 
Governors' Conference. He received 
his bachelor's degree from Vander- 
bilt University and his law degree 
from New York University. Alex- 
ander performed at the twenty-fifth 
anniversary of the Sewanee Sum- 
mer Music Center in 1981. 

Foster served Tuskegee Institute 
for forty years, first as business 
manager from 1941 to 1953 and 

then as president from 1953 to 
1981. He is a director of the United 
Negro College Fund and a trustee 
with the George Washington 
Carver Foundation. He holds de- 
grees from the Hampton Institute, 
Harvard, and the University of Chi- 
cago. He has received honorary de- 
grees from the University of 
Liberia, the University of Michigan, 
Colby College, and Loyola 

Bishop Hauser is a graduate of 
the University of the South and has 
been serving as a trustee of the 
University since 1974. He holds his 
Bachelor of Divinity from the Vir- 
ginia Theological Seminary and 
also received an honorary Doctor of 
Divinity from the Virginia Semi- 
nary in 1980. 

Wickham was visiting professor 
of English and comparative litera- 
ture at the University in September 
and is also a former participant in 
the Sewanee Mediaeval Collo- 
quium. He is professor emeritus of 
drama at the University of Bristol, 
England. Professor Wickham is 
known widely as an authority on 
the early English theatre and has 
written four volumes of Early Eng- 
lish Stages, 1300-1660. He was a 
Rockefeller Award winner in 1953 
and has served professorships at the 
State University of Iowa and Yale

"Women and Spirituality" and 
"Women and Power" will be panel 

The annual conference, as devel- 
oped by people like Mary Sue Cush- 
man, dean of women; Henrietta 
Croom, associate professor of biol- 
ogy; and Peggy Hart, instructor in 
Spanish, has a wide appeal to both 
men and women. The majority of 
events are free. 

A schedule of events may be ob- 
tained by writing to Cheryl Spector, 
instructor in English, who is the 
1985 faculty coordinator. Carrie 
Ashton, Outing Program director, is 
the assistant coordinator. 

Advantages continued 
church-related liberal arts college is 
one of its greatest strengths. Reli- 
gion at Sewanee is not forced on 
anyone. There are no required reli- 
gious services. The one required 
course in religion is an introduction 
to religious thinking and is in no 
way intended to inculcate religious 
doctrines. Yet services in All Saints' 
Chapel are well attended and pro- 
grams in Christian Social Relations 
are well supported. Moreover, as an 
institution of the Episcopal Church 
and as a community of learning, the 
University of the South stands for 
something in the realm of ideas and 

values. The University seeks to be 
true to its founders in basing its ed- 
ucational program and its corporate 
life on the following: 

— The conviction that there are 
transcendent values above and 
beyond the material world in 
which we live. 

— The confidence that the cos- 
mos, both its visible and its in- 
visible parts, ultimately hangs 
together as a coherent, intelli- 
gible whole. 

— The assurance that the indi- 
vidual human life is important 
in any adequate moral frame- 

work and that each person is 
precious in the sight of God. 
— The belief that moral growth 
and spiritual growth are signif- 
icant components of learning 
and that personal maturity is 
among the most important 
goals of education. 
Sewanee is, I believe, a college con- 
scious of its history, its heritage, its 
calling, its commitments — and it 
keeps all of them under constant 
surveillance and evaluation. Only 
in this way are we likely to fulfill 
the plans which our forebearers 
made for this community of 

New Faculty 

Three new faculty members will be 
teaching in the College during the 
Easter semester. 

Wilfred Beckerman, a fellow of 
Balliol College, Oxford, will be the 
Kennedy Distinguished Professor of 
Economics and chairman of the 
1985 Sewanee Economics Sympos- 
ium to be held in April. Professor 
Beckerman, a resident of London, is 
a former economic advisor to the 
Organization for Economic Coopera- 
tion and Development. 

He holds bachelor's, master's, and 
Ph.D. degrees from Cambridge. His 
teaching career has been centered 

_mainly at Balliol, where he was 
professor and head of the depart- 
ment of political economy from 1969 
to 1975. 

Since 1972 Professor Beckerman 
has been governor and member of 
the executive committee of the 
Council of the National Institute for 
Economic and Social Research. He 
is also a former member of the 
Royal Commission on Environmen- 
tal Pollution and was the 1978 pres- 
ident of the economic section of the 
British Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Science. He has writ- 
ten eight published books and 
numerous articles. 

Fiction writer, Kent Nelson, will 
be a Brown Foundation Fellow and 
visiting professor of English. 

Educated at Yale and Harvard 
Law School, Mr. Nelson has devoted 
himself to his craft since 1969, with 
brief stints of teaching at the Uni- 
versity of Texas and the University 
of Colorado. The Tennis Player, a 
collection of his short fiction, was 
published in 1978, and his novel, 
Cold Wind River, came out in 1981. 
Forty-four of his short stories have 
been published. 

Zane Udris, a member of the fac- 
ulty at the University of Michigan 
since 1976, will be replacing Bill 
Bonds, assistant professor of classi- 
cal languages, who will be on leave. 
Professor Udris did her undergradu- 
ate work at Barnard College, Co- 
lumbia University, and holds the 
M.A. and Ph.D. from Yale. 

Power and Relevance 

The year has gotten off to a very 
good start with an enrollment of 
1,041 regular students, including 
262 freshmen. Our retention of up- 
perclassmen has been significantly 
improved. The freshman class is the 
best qualified academically of any 
entering class since I arrived back 
in 1980, and it was selected from 
the largest number of applicants we 
have had since the early 70s. There 
is much to be thankful for. 

Our facilities have been greatly 
improved by the renovation of the 
Art Gallery, the construction of an 
all-weather track, and the equip- 
ping of a computer classroom for a 
new computer science course de- 
signed for freshmen. After the 
School of Theology moved to Hamil- 
ton Hall on the Academy campus at 
the end of July, St. Luke's Hall was 
altered for the use of the College, 
and it has proven to be a valuable 
addition to our academic facilities. 
There are now seventeen faculty of- 
fices and seven classrooms there, 
plus offices for the Sewanee Review, 
and dormitory space for students on 
the upper floors. 

Our persistent effort to improve 
faculty compensation has borne 
fruit and has put Sewanee in a bet- 
ter position in relation to compara- 
ble institutions. In the national 
report on "The Economic Status of 

the Profession," prepared by the 
American Association of University 
Professors, we have a "one" rating 
for salaries in each of the four fac- 
ulty ranks. On the list of twenty-six 
comparable colleges kept by the lo- 
cal AAUP chapter, we currently 
rank eleventh out of the twenty-six 
institutions in average faculty 

These encouraging developments 
owe a great deal to the support pro- 
vided by our friends in all locations 
and walks of life. I hope you will 
continue to bring this college to the 
attention of promising students and 
help to make our financial and 
physical resources adequate for a 

first-rate academic program. 

In the past few days I have at- 
tended a performance of the Faure 
Requiem by the University Choir in 
All Saints' Chapel and a reading of 
"Jericho, Jericho, Jericho" by its au- 
thor, our own Andrew Lytle, in the 
Bishop's Common. Both pieces 
speak eloquently of the human and 
spiritual qualities which have 
meant so much to generations of Se- 
wanee students, faculty, and resi- 
dents. They reminded me, and I 
hope many of the others who at- 
tended both events, that the educa- 
tion Sewanee provides is within a 

moral and religious context of great 
power and relevance to the human 
condition. These events also re- 
minded me how much of the rich 
cultural life in this community is 
the result of the efforts of perform- 
ers and artists who live here. 
Parents' Weekend, Alumni 
Homecoming, and other events of 
the fall brought many of Sewanee's 
friends back to the Mountain. I 
hope such visits can be repeated

Parents Form Association 

The new Parents' Association and 
Council for the College held its first 
meeting during Parents' Weekend 
in October. 

The parents of twenty-five stu- 
dents make up the council, which 
was formed to increase support, un- 
derstanding, and enthusiasm for 
the University; develop the commu- 
nity of parents into a resource for 
the College; and provide improved 
communications between the par- 
ents and the University 

The co-chairman of the a 
tion and council are Mr. and Mrs. 
Dan Rather of Atlanta, Georgia. 
Mr. Rather is executive vice-presi- 
dent of Carter and Associates, Inc., 
and both are very active in Atlanta 
civic affairs. 

The council has four standing 
committees, with a vice-chairman 
for each. The four committees are 
concerned with admissions and re- 
cruitment, career services, student 
affairs, and communications and 
events for parents. The council will 
meet at least twice a year. 

Enjoying a break during the Law Symposium are Arthur Brantley, C'85- 
Ed White. C'70; Read Carson. C'86; Dean Herbert Talbot D'Alemberte

Law Symposium 

Three Win Woods Awards 

The Prelaw Club, along with the 
Office of Career Services, held its 
1984 Law Symposium September 29 
with guest speakers from a variety 
of positions in the legal field. 

The five speakers, all Sewanee 
alumni, spoke during the evening 
about their respective fields of law. 
Dean Herbert Talbot D'Alemberte, 
dean of the Florida State Law 
School; Ed White, circuit court 
judge for the Commonwealth of 
Kentucky; Al Schmutzer, prosecu- 
tor for a judicial district in Tennes- 
see; Ed Schmutzer, assistant U.S. 
Attorney for the state of Tennessee; 

and Maibeth Jenigan Porter, attor- 
ney with the firm of Maynard, 
Cooper, Frierson and Gale of Nash- 
ville, spoke during the symposium. 

The speakers discussed what 
their job responsibilities are in the 
field of law along with the process 
of how they arrived at their present 
position. There was also a brief dis- 
cussion on how to get into the legal 
field after law school. 

The focus of this Law Symposium 
was to give Sewanee prelaw stu- 
dents an insight to the variety of 
law careers available. 

Three students have been singled 
out for their "contributions to the 
quality of life at the University" by 
being named the 1984 recipients of 
the Woods Leadership Award 

James Folds, Jr., Alison Riopel, 
and Sandra Horton were named the 
recipients during the Founders' Day 
Convocation, October 8. Folds and 
Riopel were selected from the Col- 
lege and Horton from the School of 

Folds is a junior political science 
and French major from Chapel Hill, 
North Carolina and is active in a 
number of organizations. He is a 
newly elected trustee and serves on 
the self-study committee, student 
executive committee, and trustee 
advisory committee. He is a Gowns- 
man and also a proctor along with 
being the co-captain of the Tiger 

basketball team. Socially, he is a 
member of the Highlander Club and 
Ribbon Society, and he is active in 
the Sewanee Big Brother Program. 

Riopel, a junior English major

New Watson Fellowship To Aid Graduates 

The University has been invited to 
participate this academic year in 
the Thomas J. Watson Fellowship 
Program, which offers seniors the 
exciting opportunity of spending a 
post-graduate year in independent 
study and foreign travel. 

Vice-Chancellor Robert M. Ayres, 
Jr., has accepted the invitation and 
appointed Frederick H. Croom, as- 
sociate dean of the College, to serve 
as liaison with the Foundation. 

The approximately fifty partici- 
pating institutions include many of 
the most respected private colleges 
and universities in the United 

States. Each of them is entitled to 
nominate candidates for the fellow- 
ship. The final selection of fellows is 
made by the Watson Foundation. 

Last year the Watson Foundation 
awarded fellowships to seventy stu- 
dents. Each fellowship carried a sti- 
pend of $10,000 (with an additional 
$4,000 available to married fellows 
who were responsible for supporting 
a spouse during the fellowship 

Independent study projects of re- 
cipients of the fellowship in 1983-84 
included: feminist theology in 
Kenya and India; planning new 

towns in Scandinavia and Japan; 
political theatre in Italy, France, 
and Britain; and storytelling in 
Senegal and Indonesia. 

According to the program an- 
nouncement: "The Foundation hopes 
to provide fellows an opportunity for 
a focussed and disciplined Wander- 
jahr of their own devising — a break 
in which they might explore with 
thoroughness a particular interest, 
test their aspirations and abilities, 
view their lives and American soci- 
ety in greater perspective, and, con- 
comitantly, develop a more informed 
sense of international i 

The Thomas J. Watson Founda- 
tion was founded in 1961 by Mrs. 
Thomas J. Watson, Sr., in honor of 
her late husband. Since 1968, when 
the fellowship program became the 
Foundation's major activity, some 
1,035 Watson Fellowships have 
been awarded, with stipends total- 
ing more than $8 million. 

W. Brown Patterson, dean of the 
College, believes that "this is one of 
the best opportunities available for 
imaginative and resourceful stu- 
dents who have a keen desire to 
learn about other areas of the 

Career Expo 

Career Expo '84 welcomed back 
thirteen alumni on Homecoming 
weekend for the annual gathering 
sponsored by the University's Office 
of Career Services. 

The annual Career Expo gave 
students the opportunity to discuss 
possible careers with professionals 
in an assortment of fields. This 
year's group of alumni were profes- 
sionals in the fields of business, in- 
dustry, creative arts, education, 
law, government, politics, and the 
sciences. Students and alumni vis- 
ited with each other and held infor- 
mal discussions concerning future 
jobs and career objectives. 

Business professionals in attend- 
ance for this year's expo were J. 
Kimpton Honey, C'59, chairman of 
the board, TransAm Corporation; 
Michael Powers, C'66, vice-presi- 
dent of marketing and sales, Raskas

The twelth annual Sewanee Me- 
diaeval Colloquium will be held 
April 12 and 13 with this year's 
theme, "Secularism in the Middle 

The Colloquium's lecturers will 
include Daniel Poirion, professor of 
French literature at the Universite 
de Paris-Sorbonne, and Denys Hay, 
professor emeritus of history at the 
University of Edinburgh. 

Professor Poirion will lecture on 
"School and Poetry in Francois Vil- 
lon," and "Chivalric Education in 
Jean de Satntre by Antoine de la 
Sale (1456)." 

Professor Hay's lectures will be 
"Secularism and the Learned," and 
"Secularism and the Laity." 

A number of papers will also be 
presented during the two day event. 

Economics Symposium To Have International Flavor 

The sixth annual Sewanee Econom- 
ics Symposium, April 19-20, will at- 
tract a dozen or more leading 
economists from the United States 
and abroad to discuss the very ti- 
mely problems of wage rigidity, em- 
ployment, and related economic 

Altogether the four conference 
sessions will concentrate upon 
"Causes of Wage Rigidity," 'The 
Impact of Rigidity on the Level of 
Employment," "The International 
Implications of Wage Rigidity," and 
"The Implications of Government 

Wilfred Beckerman, a well- 

known British economist — a fellow 
of Balliol College, Oxford, who has 
held high positions with the Euro- 
pean Organization for Economic Co- 
operation and Development — will 
be the symposium chairman. Mr 
Beckerman will also be Sewanee's 
Kennedy Distinguished Professor of 

Arthur M. Schaefer, University 
provost and chairman of the eco- 
nomics department, emphasized 
that the symposium deals with pol- 
icy matters, not technical matters. 
Therefore, the discussions are de- 
signed to appeal to both economists 
and the non -professional audience, 

The international scope of the 
symposium allows those attending 
to hear the views of economists out- 
side of the United States. Professor 
Schaefer said the Sewanee sympos- 
ium is the only conference he knows 
of that deals with this interest in 
any serious way. 

Businessmen who compete in do- 
mestic and foreign markets, persons 
concerned directly with government 
policy, and economics teachers 
would have a natural interest in the 
program. Anyone attending will be 
able to ask questions from the floor 
and discuss problems with the par- 
ticipants. They will also be welcome 

to the social functions held in con- 
junction with the symposium. 

Among the participants will be 
Robert Solow, professor of econom- 
ics at MIT; George Perry, a senior 
fellow at the Brookings Institute; 
Frank Hahn, a fellow at Churchill 
College, Cambridge; and Herbert 
Giersch, a professor at the Kiel In- 
stitute, Germany. All are leading

New Insights from Ancient Culture 

In June Arthur J. Knoll, professor 
of history, assisted in leading a 
group of twelve professors from col- 
leges and universities in the South- 
east on a study tour of Egypt. He 
was selected by the Duke University 
Center for Islamic and Arabian De- 
velopment Studies, which coordi- 
nated the trip. The sponsor was the 
National Council on United States- 
Arab Relations. The participants 
studied wih members of the faculty 
of the American University in Cairo 
and made trips to historic sites and 
museums in Egypt. Professor Knoll 
also took the opportunity to conduct 
some research on the subject of 
Egyptian Liberalism between 1919 
and 1939. As college coordinator for 
the Duke University program, Pro- 
fessor Knoll is instrumental in 
bringing each year to Sewanee sev- 
eral speakers on Islamic and Arabic 
subjects. He has provided us with a 
collection of his observations of 
Egypt in the following article. 

by Arthur J. Knoll 

Our sponsor, the National Council 
on United States-Arab Relations, 
originally planned to send us — 
twelve southern professors — to Jor- 
dan for a study tour in March 1984. 
Unfortunately, King Hussein's 
March criticism of United State's 
Middle Eastern policy, and the Re- 
agan government's immediate and 
eager withdrawl of the Stinger sale, 
ended prospects for this trip. Twelve 
disappointed professors sought 
other tasks for their summer. Sud- 
denly, in May, a new opportunity 
presented itself: we were to go to 
Cairo for a month's study of Egyp- 
tian culture and politics. Under the 
auspices of the National Council, 
Egypt, bound to the United States 
by Camp David and subsidies, 
would be our new host. This proved 
to be a fortuitous development. As 
the juncture between Africa and the 
Middle East, the home of Pharaonic 
culture and the Islamic heritage, 
Egypt had much to offer. A two-day 
orientation by the National Council 

Facing the Blank Page 

As a tour leader, Arthur Knoll, professor of history, enjoyed even a bit of 
the color of the countryside on a recent trip to Egypt with other university 

in Washington, D.C., gave us the 
salient information: bottled water is 
best for drinking; baksheesh (gifts) 
are often expected; female limbs 
should be discreetly covered; the 
dust in Cairo is very penetrating. 

Cairo made an immediate impres- 
sion upon us: dust, dirt, confusion, 
continuous din of car horns, an un- 
familiar language, paper and debris 
scattered about — these provided the 
initial elements of culture shock. 
After weathering this introduction, 
we observed one of Egypt's most im- 
portant assets, its people. They are 
ubiquitous, and they should be; 
Cairo houses twelve million of 
them, more than one-fourth of the 
country's population. The Egyptians 
are mostly poor, yet dignified and 
patient in adversity. Interested in 
foreigners, they are cultivators of 
human contacts. No standoffish be- 
havior or cultural aloofness here. 
Indeed if one wants conversational 
therapy, Cairo is the place where ' 
sympathetic listeners and eager dis- j 
coursers abound. Many will enter- 
tain you most of the night, 
particularly during the sacred 
month of fasting called Ramadan, j 

Arabic culture is religious, and , 
nowhere is this fact more evident ' 
than in Cairo. Mosques and mauso- ! 
leums, visible monuments to piety, , 

Sir Philip Sidney's poetic narrator 
describes himself: Biting my truant 
pen, beating myself for spite,/ Fool, 
said my muse, look in thy heart and 
write. Sidney's is the lovesick chev- 
alier though the description might 
as well describe a typical under- 
graduate the night before a paper 
deadline. Paralysis in the face of 
blank white pages is a malady fa- 
miliar to all. George Core and Wal- 
ter Sullivan remind us: "Even 
Hamlet did not always exist. Once 
there was a man named Shake- 
speare who had an idea for a play 
and a quill and ink and blank pa- 
per. He had to decide how he 

wanted to begin his play, and he ( 
had to make his decision on the ba-| 
sis of his experience as a writer and 
an actor as well as a reader and ob-- 
server of plays written by other i 
people." | 

No fine writer gets by merely j 
looking to his heart and writing. He 
first recalls, not always with the 
same degree of conscious effort, two 
bodies of knowledge: his subject and 
his medium — his language. The I 
utility of Sullivan and Core's bookl 
is its lucid discussion of the essen-j 
tials of verbal intercourse: words, 
sentences, paragraphs. Writing 
from the Inside portrays clearly how 

abound. Particularly impressive is 
the great congregrational mosque of 
Ihu Tulum (A.D. 876-79). Within its 
six-and-a-half acres we viewed the 
pointed arches which gave inspira- 
tion to the European Gothic. Egyp- 
tian Islam is of the tolerant Sunni 
variety, whose major law school, the 
Shafite, provides easy accessibility 
to the faith. Islam is nontheistic, 
catholic in its precepts, and latitudi- 
narian in its practices. Lacking the 
exclusiveness and narrow national 
ethic of Judaism, it is a true world 
faith whose mandate, like Christi- 
anity's, is to save all mankind. ' 

It would be a mistake to equate 
Egyptian Sunnism with the narrow 
sectarianism of Iranian Shiism . Al- 
though Egyptian fundamentalists 
assassinated Sadat, Iranian style 
violence is basically foreign to 
Egypt. Indeed most Egyptians view 
Khomeini's religion as doctrinaire, 
exclusive, and a diversion from the 
main path. 

Egypt provides a graphic illustra- 
tion of the effects of population 
growth. (See Time, August 6, 1984). 
Each year one million new mouths 
swell the already existent total of 
forty-six million people. From our 
hotel room we viewed the roof 
dwellers on adjacent apartment 
buildings. Unable to find space in 

these mechanical aspects of lan- 
guage are the stuff of nuance, preci- 
sion, and style. They are a means to 
knowledge and an access to the 
greater world of other persons. The 
metaphysical, if I may, underpin- 
ning to this volume is the profession 
that it is better to be understood 
and apprehended than it is to be 
misunderstood and ignored. 

This is not simply a volume for 
students confined to college class- 
rooms. It is a volume for all of us 
confronting the blank page. Its 
wealth of examples — Steve Niki- 
tas's Riding the Rails to Irving 
Howe's Imaging Labor, and a range 

quarters below, they had assembled 
rooftop shanties into permanent 
structures. Under the banks of the 
Nile live the subterranean dwellers 
who have tunneled into the em- 
bankment along the storied water- 
way. Most publicized are the 
inhabitants of the City of the Dead. 
They have created a true necropolis 
in the midst of historic Mameluke 
mausoleums and tombs, complete 
with cars, telephones, and 

In spite of crucial existential 
problems, Cairo and Egypt gener- 
ally present an often refreshing 
change from things American. For- 
tuitously absent are current Ameri- 
can emphases on sex, violence, 
alcohol, rock groups, and physical 
culture. Egyptian television, for in- 
stance, refuses programs that the 
Egyptians consider in bad taste. 
This is not to say that things Amer- 
ican are not popular in Egypt. Our 
accomplishments in technology, if 
not in diplomacy, enjoy great re- 
pute. But perceived American life- 
styles deduced from video 
misrepresentations such as Dallas 
or Dynasty get less respect. Thus, 
although most Egyptians feel that 
western expertise is worth borrow- 
ing, some eschew our cultural heri- 
tage in part because they fear a loss 
of their idenity. Egyptian intellec- 
tuals generally suspect the West of 
wanting to dominate the East — of 
not being interested in a duality of 

The capstone of our journey, ac- 
cording to all, was the viewing of 
Egyptian antiquities. The grand 
Pyramid of Cheops, the adjacent so- 
lar boat with the archeological sum- 
mary provided by its discoverer, Dr. 
Malik, Luxor with the ruins qfv 
Kanak, and Queen Hatshepsut's 
temple complex — all this served to 
impress upon us the immense age of 
this riverain culture. With memo- 
ries of an eternal civilization, we re- 
turned to the "now" metropolis of 
New York, to be immediately reim- 
mersed in the drama of immediacy 
and haste so characteristic of west- 
ern society. 

of others — give example and En- 
couragement. Good writing is not 
simply one thing; it is multitudi- 
nous as the tongues about us. The 
elements of that good writing, how- 
ever, remain sure, tried, andisafe. 
Writing from the Inside is a remark- 
ably pleasant way to remind. oneself 
of those elements and draw forti- 
tude for the next blank page around 
the corner.

Earlier this year three faculty 
members of the College were 
awarded fellowships for summer 
study and research by the National 
Endowment for the Humanities. 
Each received a stipend of $3,000. 

Edward B. King, professor of his- 
tory, used the award to help him 
prepare editions of two unique col- 
lections of the sermons of Robert 
Grosseteste, a thirteenth-century 
bishop of Lincoln and first chancel- 
lor of Oxford University. He spent a 
month last summer at the British 
Library in London and six weeks at 
the Bodleian Library at Oxford and 
expects to complete the work in the 
course of the next year. 

Under the NEH grant, William 
"Mac" Priestley, professor of mathe- 
matics, has been studying "Frege 
and the Philosophy of Mathematics" 
in a seminar at the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The 
material he has been compiling will 
eventually be incorporated into the 
concluding chapters of a forthcom- 
ing book, the second volume oiCal- 
culus: An Historical Approach 
(1979). Professor Priestley said his 
goal in these chapters is to render 
the flavor of the late nineteenth and

Edward Carlos, professor of fine 
arts, spent the period of June 18 to 
August 10 at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts in Amherst studying 
"Psychoanalysis, Contemporary 
Criticism, and Shakespeare." His 
study and research were made pos- 
sible by the NEH grant. Mr. Carlos 
continues to exhibit his work with 
great success. Earlier this year he 
completed an exhibit of pencil and 
crayon drawings at the Riverside 
Festival of Dance in New York 
City. The exhibit in the cloister 
lobby gallery of the Theatre of the 
Riverside Church entailed dance 
portraits of some of the nation's 

most outstanding dancers. This 
same exhibit will be presented this 
spring for the Southeast Regional 
Ballet Association in Charleston, 
South Carolina. Professor Carlos 
has accepted an invitation to de- 
liver a paper based upon last sum- 
mer's research to a conference on 
"Dreams, Literature, and Film" at 
the University of Florida in Talla- 
hassee. In addition, six of his poems 
have been published in four differ- 
ent periodicals. 

John McCarthy, associate professor 
of political science, has taken a 
leave of absence for this academic 
year to accept an appointment from 
the governor of California to serve 
as director of community relations 
in that state. In this position he is 
serving as the governor's represent- 
ative to the various ethnic and ra- 
cial minorities in California. The 
opportunity to help improve the 
democratic prossesses in one of the 
nation's most pluralistic states is a 
rare one for a political scientist. 

James G. Hart, assistant professor 
of history and political science, is 
writing a chapter for-a book on the 
history of Saratov (USSR), sched- 
uled for publication late next year 
by the University of Illinois Press. 
The chapter is entitled "Saratov 
from Razin to Pugachev: The Volga 
Frontier Town in the Time of the 
Great Cossack Uprisings, 1670- 
1774. 1 ' The book will be a collection 
of articles edited by Rex Wade of 
the University of Hawaii. Professor 
Hart has also been assigned to 
write the entry on Stepan Razin, 
the great Cossack rebel and Rus- 
sian folk hero, for the Modern Ency- 
clopedia of Russian and Soviet 
History. He has also been involved 
in several recent conferences and 
symposia. In October he chaired a 
panel on Russian and Soviet Poli- 
tics at the annual meeting of the 
Southern Conference on Slavic 
Studies held at Virginia Common- 
wealth University in Richmond. 
The previous month he read a paper 
entitled "Razin's Second Coming: 
Pugachev's Rebellion in the Middle 
Volga Region, July-August, 1774" 

Students Begin Journal 

Last spring a new publication ap- 
peared on the Sewanee scene. That 
introductory issue of the University 
of the South Journal of Arts and 
Sciences attracted considerable com- 
ment, mostly favorable, throughout 
the campus. 

Professor Stephen E. Puckette 
sent the editors these words of en- 
couragement: "The success of the 
Journal is important for the intel- 
lectual life of this place — it can en- 
courage the serious and raise the 
sights of the less serious. If it en- 
dures, you will have made a signifi- 
cant contribution to the history of 
the University." 

The first issue was devoted to the 
liberal arts, a natural outgrowth of 

purposes for which the Journal was 
founded. Many persons in the Uni- 
versity community contributed es- 
says and monographs to make the 
first issue a success, notably W. 
Brown Patterson, dean of the Col- 
lege, who prepared a paper on "Mar- 
lowe's Doctor Faustus and the 
Pursuit of Secular Learning " and 
Brown Foundation Fellow Alan 
Cheuse, who submitted a short 
story entitled "Big Mouth." 

The development of this new jour- 
nal deserves watching. Further in- 
formation or a copy of the Journal 
may be obtained by writing: The 
Journal of Arts and Sciences, Uni- 
versity Station, Sewanee, Tennessee

Several members of the University 
faculty, along with family members 
and students, participated last May 
30 in observations made of the an- 
nular solar eclipse. Some joined as- 
tronomers who traveled to Rico, 
Georgia, near the center of the 
eclipse path, a site reserved by the 
Barnard Astronomical Society of 
Chattanooga. Jack Lorenz, profes- 
sor of physics, and his wife, Anne, 
took the opportunity to photograph 
some of the equipment being used 
by astronomers at Rico. Their objec- 
tive was to assemble a set of color 
slides to instruct astronomy stu- 
dents in the many methods of ob- 
serving solar eclipses. 

Frank Hart and Eric Ellis, profes- 
sors of physics, and students viewed 
and studied the eclipse with the 
University Observatory's Clestron 
Five telescope, using a full aperture 
Mylar Solar Screen filter. They 
magnified the sun's image about 
thirty-one times and conducted sev- 
eral public viewing sessions. 

Polaroid photographs and time 
measurements were made by Fran- 
cis Cordell, director of the Alvan 
Clark telescope restoration project 
at Sewanee. He used a six-inch 
Newtonian reflector telescope that 
he designed and constructed with 
mostly wooden parts. The photo- 
graphs at a magnification of about 
thirty-six times revealed a number 
of sun spots. 

Meanwhile, back in Sewanee, 
Professor Charles Foreman and 
David Camp, emeritus professor of 
chemistry, were viewing the 92-per- 
cent partial eclipse from the roof of 
Cleveland Hall. They projected the 
solar image on a screen for public 
viewing by about fifty University 
staff and faculty members.

Coinmitment to Mission 

by the Very Rev. John E. Booty 

On November 1 we celebrated the first anniversary of SPCK with a 
public lecture at Sewanee given by the Right Reverand John Howe, 
who was for fourteen years General Secretary of the Anglican Con- 
sultative Council and is now a consultant to SPCK. While the Society 
for Promoting Christian Knowledge in the U.S.A. is independent, it is 
lodged in Hamilton Hall, now the center of activities for the School of 
Theology, and is sustained in many ways by the University of the 

We are engaged, therefore, in a significant missionary outreach. 
SPCK is arousing an interest in and a commitment to missions here 
in a way that is simply not possible through a course or a workshop. 
Its administrative assistant is Karen Crippen. She and her husband, 
a seminary middler, were for years missionaries in Asia and in Af- 
rica. Karen's office is a veritable museum of gracious and impressive 
artifacts from Burma, Kenya and elsewhere. The first project to reach 
completion is that of providing prayer books in Spanish for the Epis- 
copal Church in Honduras, where alumnus Leo Frade is bishop; and 
where a graduate of last year, Carmen Guerrero, is also at work. An- 
other project will involve translating EFM materials into Spanish 
through the church in Mexico. While we shall continue to have some 
overseas students and send some of our students to the Overseas Mis- 
sions Center in Ventnor, New Jersey, each January, SPCK/USA is 
the most important involvement i 

It is to be hoped that in time to come we shall as a school be more 
vitally related to the third world, possibly through the exchange of 
students with the new seminary in the Dominican Republic and 
through work projects in various places. Each week we have a service 
of evening prayer in Spanish, and more and more of our students are 
becoming involved in the language. Thus more and more are becom- 
ing candidates for experience among Hispanic people overseas and at 

It is also to be hoped that we shall develop in the near future a 
program of outreach to the people of Appalachia in the spirit of mu- 
tual responsibility and interdependence, renouncing the old colonial- 
ist way of doing mission. There are plans for this. 

Finally, it is to be hoped that we shall grasp the essential nature of 
mission as being outreach to those who know not Christ, people in our 
midst as well as people far distant. In a way, an important way, to be 
in Christ is to be a missionary, one who is sent out as a disciple of 
Christ to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name 
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to 
observe all" that Christ has commanded them, "to prea*ch good news 
to the poor. . . to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of 
sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to pro- 
claim the acceptable year of the Lord." The School of Theology should 
be known as the School of Mission, engaging itself in the i 
which is Christ's 

New DuBose 

Beginning next year the School of 
Theology will initiate a theological 
symposium, which will gather into 
a single event the three annual lec- 
ture series traditionally held at Se- 
wanee in different seasons of the 

The first DuBose Theological 
Symposium, as it has been named, 
will be held next October 15 and 16 
and will consist of three lectures. 
This first symposium will celebrate 
the hundredth anniversary of the 
birth of Karl Barth, the Swiss theo- 
logian and leader of Neo-Orthodoxy, 
who became a center of resistence to 
Adolph Hitler. 

In addition to the three' main lec- 
tures, six papers will be read on the 
general theme of the symposium. A 
call for papers is being made by the 
chairman of the symposium, the 
Rev. William Hethcock. Interested 
persons should notify Mr. Hethcock 
as soon as possible through his of- 
fice at the School of Theology. 

Three noted theologians will lec- 
ture on the life and theology of 
Barth, and Mr. Hethcock expressed 
the hope that the combination of 
lectures and papers will attract 
even greater interest than the pre- 
vious series had attracted 

One of the principal lectures 
within the symposium will be the 
John White Arrington Lecture, 
which is endowed. Another will be 
the Samuel Marshall Beattie

St. Luke's Day and DuBose Lectures 

The celebration of St. Luke's Day 
was held in conjunction with the 
DuBose Lectures October 16 and 17 
at the School of Theology. 

In addition to the three stirring 
lectures given by Dr. B. Davie Na- 
pier, alumni enjoyed a banquet at 
Cravens Hall, with almost 200 per- 
sons attending and an alumni 
luncheon after a Eucharist, with 
seventy in attendance. The senior 
class joined alumni for the c

A Life Dedicated to Service 


by Scott Arnold, T'87 
The role of servanthood is not a for- 
eign one to Bill Squire. 

A senior and president of the 
1984-85 School of Theology's stu- 
dent body, Bill views his student ex- 
ecutory role more as ministry than 
as authoratative responsibility. "I 
see myself as the link between the 
student body and the dean and ad- 
ministrative staff," he says. "I see 
opportunity to serve the 

Indeed, fulfilling Christ's com- 
mand to be "servant of all" is a 
charge Bill does not take lightly t , 
Whether in regard to his previous 
military career as an Army lieuten- 
ant colonel, or to his present activi- 
ties in the School of Theology, or to 
his future role as a priest in the Di- 
ocese of Middle Tennessee, Bill sees 
his life in-service to others, "Ser- 
vanthood is upwards in my mind. 
That is what we are called to do as 
priests — serve." 

Immediately prior to coming to 
Sewanee in 1982, Bill was com- 
mander of law enforcement at Fort 
Campbell, Kentucky. According to 
Bill, the concept of servanthood as 
it applies to the military is a very 
meaningful one. Throughout his 
twenty-three years in the Army, 
five of which he served as an infan- 
tryman and eighteen as a commis- 
sioned officer, including combat 
duty in the Dominican Republic and 
in Vietnam as well as ten years as a 
military police officer, Bill looked 
on his vocation as something more 
than just a job; he saw himself as a 
minister and "defender of freedom." 
He further considered his work as 
that of peacemaker and peacekee- 
per, two important functions he 
wants to carry into his ordained 
ministry, the life for which he left 
military service. 

At the recommendation of his 
bishop, the Rt. Rev. William E. 
Sanders, Bill left his home parish in 
Clarksville, Tennessee, to attend 
Sewanee, a move Bill does not re- 
gret. "I truly love the mountain, 
and I really love the University and 
the Seminary," he says. "I'm very 
excited that this is the place I've 
been led to." 

Bill notes that the School of The- 
ology has had a great deal of influ- 
ence on his scholastic and spiritual 
life. Upon graduation this spring, 
Bill will be able to add a Master of 
Divinity degree to a bachelor's de- 
gree in criminal justice, a master's 
degree in administration of justice, 
and a degree from the Federal Bu- 
reau of Investigation Academy. 

But the additional degree is not 
all Bill will have received from 

"The School of Theology has 
many strengths, not the least of 
which is the faculty," he observes. 
"They are concerned about the stu- 
dent and the student's priestly 

Dean John Booty, with whom Bill 
has worked especially closely dur- 
ing his student body presidency, has 
been a positive guiding force in 
Bill's life at Sewanee. "His (Dean 
Booty's) spiritual direction has been 
an, obvious asset to the entire com- 
munity." Bill meets regularly with 
Dean Booty to discuss student con- 
cerns. "We deal with anything that 
affects the Seminary." 

Bill also points out that the re- 
cent move of the Seminary to Ham- 
ilton Hall, previously part of the 
Sewanee Academy, is a definite 
"plus" to the community. "The move 
to Hamilton Hall gave us adequate 
facilities which enhance the aca- 
demic environment." 

But Bill is involved in more than

the academics of Seminary life and 
has responsibilities beyond his stud- 
ies. In addition to serving on the Se- 
wanee Community Council as 
student body representative, Bill's 
most demanding school-related du- 
ties are those as the student body 
president who takes the needs of 
the entire student body before the 
administration. "I chair the Execu- 
tive. Committee, the governing body 
of St. Luke's community, which in- 
cludes faculty, staff, students, and 
spouses," he says. "We try to be in- 
volved in all facets of the 

Bill also has a family to consider. 
He and his wife, Peg (who is presi- 
dent of the Seminary spouses' orga- 
nization), have six children between 
the ages of fifteen and twenty-four. 
The youngest, Sandi, is in the tenth 

grade at St. Andrew's-Sewanee 

Although Bill is looking forward 
to graduation, he will miss the life 
he will leave behind. "I have felt 
privileged to serve the community," 
he says. "I'm excited about my fu- 
ture ministry, but I will leave with 
mixed emotions because of this com- 
munity. I will find it difficult to 

Bill is presently interested in en- 
tering the parish priesthood once he 
does leave Sewanee, but he also is 
considering enhancing that minis- 
try; by serving as a police, or per- 
haps a prison, chaplain. "I'm 
interested in going into some aspect 
of the criminal justice field as a 

Wherever Bill goes, one thing is 
for sure; he will go there to serve. 

Alumni Council Adds Praises 

by the Rev. W. A. Abstein 

A very spirited Alumni Council 
meeting was held on October 16 at 
the new Seminary location of Ham- 
ilton Hall. The members had a tour 
of the facilities, which have been re- 
furished in a very beautiful way. 
The appointments throughout are 
not only functional but are deco- 
rated in exquisite taste befitting a 
major Seminary of the Episcopal 
Church. Resolutions of thanksgiv- 
ing were offered in appreciation to 
Vice- Chancellor Ayres, design coor- 
dinator Bimmie McGee, Tom Wat- 
son, Patricia Smith, and Carl Reid, 
all of whom played instrumental 
roles in the transition from the old 
to the new. It was a major task and, 
from our vantage point, very well 

Dean Booty noted that construc- 
tion of a new chapel and renovation 
of Quintard Hall are yet to be ac- 
complished. Quintard Hall will be 
the site of new single-student and 
married-student housing, the Edu- 
cation for Ministry Program, and 
several other activities. 

The dean also reported that the 
student morale is high and that the 
move to the new facilities had over- 
whelming support from the student 

William U. Whipple gave a report 
on the one-percent program, which 
has resulted in support of $72,000, 
as of that date. This money is going 
directly to the School of Theology, 
and Dean Booty said the bulk of 
these funds are being used for stu- 
dent aid. He cited the continuing 
trend of high debt for graduating 

:. Often a graduate will have 
a debt of $15,000 or $16,000. 

We are looking for a "few good 
alumni," who would like to take a 
leadership role in the support of 
their Seminary. Some of the mem- 
bers of the Alumni Council are re- 
tiring from their three-year terms 
of office. They are the Rev. Messrs. 
Richard Bridgford, John Jenkins, 
Charles McKimmon, and King Oeh- 
mig. We are grateful for their dedi- 
cated service to the Seminary and 
the University of the South.

Grid Squad 
Looks to 1985 

The Tigers ended a frustrating year 
with a 38-33 loss to Samford Uni- 
versity in Birmingham in a game 
that was interrupted by tornado 

The Tigers, after taking a quick 
10-0 first-quarter lead, hung on to 
take a 24-21 margin into the locker- 
room at halftime. The Tigers re- 
turned after the intermission to see 
the Bulldogs score seventeen unan- 
swered points for a 38-24 fourth- 
quarter lead. Time ran out as the 
Tigers' rally came up short. Sewa- 
nee ended the year with a 0-9 

Several Tiger players proved to 
be bright spots during the otherwise 
disappointing season. Quarterback 
Bobby Morales, C'87, led the Col- 
lege Athletic Conference in passing 
by throwing for 1,640 yards and 
four touchdowns. David Pack, C'85, 
tied his own school record for 
catches in one season with fifty-six, 
and Lee Pride, C'85, also had a good 
year with thirty-six receptions for 
600 yards and five touchdowns. Ti- 
ger punter, Brian Mainwaring, 
C'86, punted forty-five times aver- 
aging 40.5 yards per punt. 

Three Sewanee players were 
named to the College Athletic Con- 
ference all-conference team. David 
Pack, C'85, was named for the third 
consecutive year, while Dan Rather, 
C'85, and Clark Johnson, C'86, were 
named for the second straight year. 

The Tigers will open their 1985 
campaign against the Samford Uni- 
versity Bulldogs September 7 at 
McGee Field in Sewanee. 

Men's Cross Country 

The Sewanee men's cross country 
team finished fifth as a team in the 
NCAA South Regional Champion- 
ships, held in Sewanee November 

In the fifth-place team finish, Se- 
wanee's John Butcher, C'85, took 
third place individually with a time 
of 26:20. Paul Pfefferkorn, C'86, fin- 
ished in thirteenth place with a 
time of 27:12. The Tigers, overall, 
had a strong showing with three 
runners finishing in the top sixteen. 
Emorv won the team championship. 

Butcher qualified for the NCAA 
Division 111 Nationals at Ohio Wes- 
leyan University. 

The Tigers, on October 27, trav- 
eled to Terre Haute, Indiana, to 
compete in the conference champi- 
onships and captured a third-place 
team finish, as well as an individ- 
ual first. Butcher took first individ- 
ually with a time of 26:37 for the 
five-mile course. Pfefferkorn and 
Allen Etheridge, C'88, ran well for 
the Tigers.

ence meet and fifth in the Women's 
NCAA South Regional Champion- 
ships to end a successful season. 

The WLAC meet saw Virginia 
Brown, C'87, capture the Individual 
Championship and lead the Tigers 
to a second place team finish behind 
Rhodes College. Brown ran the 
course with a time of 20:18. Tucker 
Deaton, C'87, also ran a good race, 
finishing tenth, with a time of 
24:31. Both Brown and Deaton were 
named All-WIAC. 

The Women's NCAA South Re- 
gional Championships were held at 
Sewanee on November 10 and the 
host Tigers finished fifth in a seven- 
team field. Virginia Brown, once 
again, turned in the best finish for 
the team with a thirteenth place 
performance. Her time for the 
three-mile course was 19:42. Catho- 
lic University of America won the 


The Tiger volleyball team finished 
its season with a second-place finish 
in the Women's Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Conference Tournament. 

After a first-match loss to Mary- 
ville (16-14, 11-15, 15-110), the Ti- 
gers went on to win four straight 
over Asbury, Rhodes, Fisk, and Be- 
rea to put them into the tourna- 
ment finals. The Tigers met 
Maryville in the finals and were not 
able to win any games in the match, 
losing two straight 15-8 and 15-9. 
Lizz Epps, C'86, was named to the 
all- tournament team. Coach Nancy 
Ladd felt that the experience of 
playing in the finals will help the 
Tigers next year. 

Field Hockey 

The Sewanee women's field hockey 
team closed out its season by cap-

The Tigers defeated Asbury 4-0 in

Sewanee dominated Asbury dur- 
ing the match-up, piling up forty-

Canoe Team 

The competition finally caught up 
with Sewanee in this year's South- 
ern Intercollegiate Canoe 

Western Carolina University rode 
its success in the downriver to give 
Sewanee its second loss only in the 
thirteen years of the championship. 
The Carolina team edged Sewanee 
by only thirty points, and the two 
leaders left the other eight teams 
far behind. 

Carrie Ashton, coach and Outing 
Club director, said Sewanee's 
younger team members were very 

disappointed' in the loss, but they 
were consoled by the coaches who 
have been watching the competition 
grow stronger. 

"This team was as good as the 
teams of the past, but Western Car- 
olina was much improved," Ashton 
said. "This is good for competition, 
and next year we'll have some extra 


Carrie Ashton, Sewanee's Outing 
Club director, took first place in two 
events this past summer at the 
Open Canoe National Champion- 

ships on the Nantahala River in 
North Carolina. 

Already a past national champion 
andan Olympian, Carrie won the 
open canoe singles (short class) and 
joined with Elizabeth Johns of the 
Nantahala Center to capture the 
open canoe doubles event for 
women. She also paddled to a third 
place with Angus Morrison of the 
Nantahala Center in the mixed 
open canoe championships. 

Doug Cameron, Bishop's Common 
director, and Steve Puckette, profes- 
sor of mathematics, paddled to a 
third place in downriver and to a 
sjxth place in slalom for a fifth over- 
all in the C-II class. 

Great Promise 
for Cagers 

A nice blend of experienced players 
and newcomers portends a bright 
season for the Tigers on the cage 
court, although Coach Bobby Dwyer 
says much depends on how quickly 
the players begin working together. 

Senior Jim Startz, last year's all- 
conference and NCAA all-district 
pick, will lead the Tigers into an- 
other tough schedule. Juniors Jim 
Folds and Steve Kretsch, along with 
senior Ellis Simmons and sopho- 
more Rob Scott are expected to con- 
tribute this season. 

The Tigers play several non-con- 
ference opponents, including the 
Citadel, a Division I team, before 
beginning their CAC schedule. 

Women's Basketball 

Returning three starters, including 
a consensus Little All- American, 
the Sewanee women's basketball 
team is optomistic about the 1984- 
85 season and its chances to im- 
prove on last year's 10-15 record. 

They are led by all-conference 
center Kim Valek, last year's lead- 
■ ing rebounder and scorer with an 
average of 18.9 points and 10.2 re- 
bounds per game. The team's second 
leading scorer, Susy Steele, also has 

Coach Nancy Ladd feels that the 
experience among her four starting 
sophomores will be the difference in 
the upcoming season. 


The Sewanee men's and women's 
swim teams are expecting a good 
year with several returning letter- 
men from last year's squads. 

Senior captain Kyle Bennett, jun- 
iors Jack Krupnick and Forrest 
McClain, and sophomore David 
Lawrence are expected to lead the 
men's squad. The men opened the 
season with an upset win over Geor- 
gia State. Coach Cliff Afton has 
hopes that the men will do well 
throughout the season and during 
the Centre Invitational and Liberal 
Arts Swimming and Diving 

The women's swim team is led by 
sophomore Marilyn Bean and junior 
diver Melissa Bulkley. Bulkley 
went to the nationals-her freshman 
year, but had to sit out her sopho- 
more year due to injuries. The 
women are also expecting to have a 
good season, expecially in the Wom- 
en's Intercollegiate Athletic Confer- 
ence meet later this season. 


According to Coach Yogi Anderson, 
this year's Sewanee wrestling team 
could be one of the more talented 
teams that he has had the opportu- 
nity to coach in his seven years at 

Returning from last year's 13-6 
team will be junior Armando Basar- 
rate, along with Rob McGehee, Sor- 
rell Chew, Brian Masters, Rob 
Mcintosh and heavyweights David 
Lee and Paul Todd Nicks. 

Coach Anderson also likes the 
freshman crop of wrestlers which 
have impressive high school creden- 
tials and show promise.

Homecoming was launched with 
the alumni buffet dinner Friday 
night in Cravens Hall which was 
preceded by a get-acquainted party 
and followed by the annual alumni 
dance — three styles of music to try 
to fit various ages and tastes. 

The class of 1939 started early, 
even before the banquet, with a 
picnic lunch at the home of William 
S. Mann on Sherwood Road. 

The Associated Alumni meeting 
Saturday morning was preceded by 
a Eucharist in All Saints' Chapel, 
while the alumni fun run began 
outside on University Avenue. The 
class of 1949 held a breakfast and 
then a reunion luncheon under the 
leadership of John Guerry of Chat- 
tanooga. Many other alumni en- 
joyed a continental breakfast in 
Convocation Hall prior to the meet- 
ing of the Associated Alumni. 

The annual meeting (see related 
story) broke up slowly, though most 
alumni were soon on their way to 
either the hospitality tent on the 
lawn of the Bishop's Common, a 
fraternity gathering, or one of the

a swimming record board was dedi- 
cated to the memory of Stuart Scott, 
a record-holding member of the 
1974 and 1975 swimming teams. In 
addition, a reception was held at 
Rebel's Rest to announce the estab- 
lishment of the Robert S. Lancaster 
Scholarship Fund (see related 

Dividing time between the 
alumni hospitality tent and the 
alumni luncheon proved so difficult 
for alumni that alumni director 
Beeler Brush said next year he will 
get a larger tent and have lunch un- 
der the "big top." 

Soon after noon the alumni pa- 
rade began to form under threaten- 
ing skies, and in spite of the 
Sewanee drizzle (hardly worth an 
umbrella), the largest Homecoming 
parade ever moved from duPont Li- 
brary to McGee Field. 

The Tigers came within a missed 
tackle and a dropped pass of defeat- 
ing Rose-Hulman in the grid game. 
Then the crowd scattered to a dozen 
reunion parties.

Schoolfield, the class of 1929 held a

(^Associated Alumni 

The annual meeting of the Associ- 
ated Alumni had perhaps its best 
attendance ever during Homecom- 
ing 1984 on October 27. 

The meeting included the usual 
awards and presentations, and 
there were brief remarks by se- 
lected alumni and University offi- 
cers. The rather jovial atmosphere 
was probably enhanced by a sched- 
ule that held the length of the meet- 
ing to one hour. Both before and 
after the gathering, members could 
choose to talk business or merely 

Vice-Chancellor Ay res gave a re- 
port on the Century II campaign, 
pointing out that the $37 million 
raised to date puts the University 
several years ahead of its original 
campaign schedule. The current 
alumni phase of the campaign has a 
goal of $1 million, which will be 
used to create an alumni chair. 

Mr. Ayres said that by 1990 the 
University will need $100 million to 
fund the programs that will main- 
tain excellence. 

Alumni President Jack Stephen- 
son made reports on admissions and 
development, with special reference 
to the planned-giving program. He 
called attention to the excellent 
year for the admissions office and 
called upon alumni to assist by re- 
ferring prospective students to Se- 
wanee, helping with college nights, 
and serving as hosts for receptions. 

The highlight of the development 
year was the increase in the per- 
centage of alumni giving to 34.6 
percent, with total gifts from 
alumni reaching $1,393,173. Mr. 
Stephenson said the challenge gift 
of Gerald L. DeBlois, C'63, was the 
most remarkable story of the year. 

During the meeting the 1984 
Dobbins Cup was awarded to the 
Sewanee Club of Atlanta. Represen- 
tatives from Middle Georgia, Mo- 
bile, and Nashville were presented 

with certificates of excellence in 
recognition of outstanding years. 

The Golden Rim Award, which 
serves to recognize the member who 
traveled the greatest distance to 
Homecoming, was presented to Wil- 
liam E. McLaurin, C'74. He trav- 
eled from Benin, Africa, to attend 
Homecoming (also managing a visit 
with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lee 
McLaurin of Sewanee). 

Mr. Stephenson recognized the 
1984 Distinguished Alumnus, Wil- 
liam M. Spencer III, who had been 
honored at the annual banquet the 
previous night. 

Mr. Stephenson did not leave 
without receiving some recognition 
of his own. He was given a special 
presentation by William U. Whip- 
ple, vice-president for development. 

The presentations ended with the 
awarding of alumni exornati keys 
by the Vice-Chancellor to ten mem- 
bers of the class of 1934.

Slate of Officers Elected by Associated Alumni 

Jesse L. "Sam" Carroll, C'69, of 
New York City is the new president 
of the Associated Alumni, replacing 
Jack L. Stephenson, C49. 

Mr. Carroll heads a slate of new 
officers elected October 27 at the 
annual meeting of the Associated 
Alumni. He has just completed a 
term as the association's Alumni 
Fund chairman. 

Other new officers are M. Scott 
Ferguson, C79, vice-president for 
admissions; Dennis M. Hall, C69, 
vice-president for bequests; Stuart 
Childs, C49, vice-president for re- 
gions; and Lee Glenn, C'57, chair- 
man of the Alumni Fund. 

Other retiring officers are Ed- 
ward Hine, vice-president for ad- 
missions, and Allen M. Wallace, 
vice-president for regions. 

Mr. Stephenson expressed his ap- 
preciation to the University's staff 
for its assistance and made special 
presentations and commendations 
to his fellow retiring officers. He 
called special attention to the serv- 
ice given to the University by Ed 
Hine — his work in founding the Se- 
wanee Club of Rome, Georgia, and 
his practice for years of driving 
prospective students to the Moun- 

tain to aid the admissions efforts. A 
certificate of appreciation was ac- 
cepted by Henry Hine, C'78, in his 
father's absence. 

In expressing his appreciation, 
Henry Hine told the gathering: "Se- 
wanee has been in my family for a 
long time, and I hope it will be in 
my family for a long time to come." 
President: Sam Carroll, C'69, has 
served as chairman of the Alumni 
Fund for the past three years and 
previously was the decade chairman 
for the classes of 1961 to 1970. Re- 
cently he was honored by the Sewa- 
nee Club of New York by being 
selected as the recipient of its Histo- 
riographer's Award, given to the 
club's most distinguished member. 
Vice-President for Admissions: 
Scott Ferguson, C'79, has served for 
the past three years as an assistant 
to Ed Hine in this position. He has 
been active in the Sewanee Club of 
Chattanooga and is presently in 
charge of the club's Sewanee 
Awards program.

active member of the Sewanee Club 
of Atlanta. In this position, he will

tion, his concern is with Sewanee 

clubs, with which he has considera- 
ble experience.

I have recently taken employment 
with Tri-State Federal Savings and 
Loan Association, which is in the 
process of changing its name to Re- 
public Bank for Savings, F. A. We 
are also moving our home office to 
Jackson, Mississippi. 

It is remarkable to note the in- 
volvement of Sewanee alumni in 
putting together this new institu- 
tion. I was hired on August 27, 
1984, to manage the new concern. I 
am an alumnus of the college, class 
of 1972. My first depositor was 
George T. Houston, class of 1944, 
college. When I came to Jackson, I 
sought a reputable commercial real- 

tor to help me -find a site on which I 
could build my new bank. That rep- 
utable commercial realtor happened 
to be Jim Brown, class of 1964, col- 
lege. I left Jim's office one day to es- 
tablish a business relationship with 
a marketing agency in Jackson, for 
which Robin Harding, class of 1969, 
college, is a partner. 

Having purchased a tract of 
ground for the construction of a new 
home site, I engaged one of Jack- 
son's better architectural firms to 
draw the plans. Robert Ivy, class of 
1969, college, is a partner of this 
firm. Next week, we will be taking 
bids for the construction of this fa- 

cility. I am hopeful that Dunn Con- 
struction Company, Inc., of Jackson 
will be the contractor. The presi- 
dent of Dunn is Timothy Mitch, 
class of 1969, college. 

Finally, I walked across the street 
today to the Mississippi State De- 
partment of Archives, and ran into 
Ron Tomlin, class of 1969, college, 
with whom I ran cross-country and 
sang in the University Choir my 
freshman year at Sewanee. Ron and 
I are having lunch tomorrow to 
catch up on old times. 

I thought you might be interested 
in hearing of all the Sewanee 

alumni whose paths I have crossed 
during a brief two-month entry into 
Jackson, Mississippi. One addi- 
tional coincidence is the fact that 
Jim Brown and I took our wives to 
the football game between Ole Miss 
and The University of Southern 
Mississippi this last Saturday. An 
insert in the game's program de- 
tailed the accomplishments of Se- 
wanee's famous football squad of 
1899. A photocopy of this insert is 
enclosed herewith for your perusal.

The Story Is Still Amazing 

by Alf Van Hoose, 
Birmingham News 

This is not an April Fool football 
story. These games happened. Be- 
lieve it or not! 

Sewanee 12, University of Texas 

Sewanee 10, Texas A&M 

Sewanee 23, Tulane 

Sewanee 34, LSUO 

Sewanee 12, Ole Miss 

So what? So what, indeed. But 
think on this: Those five games 
were played in a six-day period. 

Five football games in six days? 
Right, and don't quit reading. 

Sewanee won them all on the 

Furthermore, Princeton -alumnus 
coach Herman Suter used only fif- 
teen of his twenty-one-man Sewa- 
nee squad on the 2,500-mile shutout 
victory swing which wasn't by auto, 
or bus, or plane. His Purple Tigers 
traveled by train, with wood-burn- 
ing engines. 

Remarkable story? Yes. The Col- 
lege Football Hall of Fame near 
Cincinnati ought to play it big. It 
doesn't now. Someday it will. 

No team will match that feat. 

It happened in 1899. William 
McKinley was the president of the 
U.S., while in England Queen Vic- 
toria was still doddering around 
Buckingham Palace. 

Sewanee was officially "The Uni- 
versity of the South," ivy all over its 
10,000-acres up the road a piece 
from Chattanooga, if one is headed 
toward Nashville. 

Football is still there. It's not de- 
emphasized football-just football, 
by student-scholars. The late Shir- 
ley Majors, John's dad, coached it 
with distinction for years. 

The NCAA knows about Sewanee 
football. It has awarded more of its 
post-graduate honors scholarships 
there than to any Division III insti- 
tution in the land. 

Sewanee is proud of its football 
tradition but does not boast of it 
from housetops. Once upon a time 
the Purple Tigers were the peren- 
nial southern football power. 

It wasn't a power by the time the 
Southeastern Conference was born 
in 1933, but Sewanee was a mem- 
ber. It resigned in 1940. with an 0- 

37 SEC football record. 

But from 1899, for thirty-odd sea- 
sons Sewanee wasn't embarrassed 
to challenge anybody. 

Its memorable team, that '99 
team ignored by history, set a tone. 
The five wins in six days came late 
in a 12-0-0 season. 

Sewanee archives credit Luke 
Lea, a big-dreaming team business 
manager, with assembling the play- 
ers for 1899, and persuading Suter 
to coach them. 

Lea later became a Nashville 
newspaper publisher and U.S. sena- 
tor. He recruited men from several 
states, mostly players with college 

Warbler Wilson, quarterback, 
had been a second-stringer at South 
Carolina. Captain of the team was 
H. G. Seibels, of Birmingham, Ala- 
bama, a lineman. Seibels was the 
last survivor of the team, dying in 
1969, as a College Football Hall of 

Sewanee opened its '99 season de- 
feating Georgia, 112-0, and Georgia 
Tech. 32-0, in Atlanta on October 
21 and October 23. It routed Ten- 
nessee, 46-0, and Southwestern. 54- 
0, at home within the next eleven 

It finished the year spanking 
Cumberland, 71-0, on November 20 
at home; Auburn, 11-10, in Montgo- 
mery on November 30; and North 
Carolina, 5-0, in Atlanta, December 

The final game should have been 
called a 'bowl.' It predated the Rose 
Bowl by two years, with all the ele- 
ments to qualify it as a major post- 
season game. 

Sewanee heard about North Caro- 
lina claiming the Dixie champion- 
ship. The Tigers challenged the 
boast and settled it, by a field goal 
(which counted five points then). 

But The Trip was for the ages. 
Lea promoted that, too. He even 
talked school fathers into buying 
new uniforms for the team — the 
custom back then had players fur- 
nishing their own combat ward- 
robes and shoes. 

A crisis developed on the team's 
special sleeper car five miles down 
the railroad from Sewanee. Lea re- 
membered he'd fonmtten tn load the 

new uniforms off the station 

Lea got the conductor to wire a 
request that the equipment be dis- 
patched on the following train. The 
uniforms caught up with the play- 
ers a few minutes before kickoff in 

Sewanee caught up with a fast- 
starting Texas early in the match. 
The Longhorns moved to the Tiger 

A story goes that at that point a 
Sewanee alumnus waved a fistful of 
money to fellow sidelining Texans, 
offering odds that Texas wouldn't 
score then, or later. 

Texans covered. Texans lost. 

One Sewanee version of that 
gamble is that most of the winning 
money involved represented an in- 
vestment by Sewanee players. 

Historians report that following 
the game Texans hosted Sewanee 
players at a dance. 

Following a late night trip to 
Houston, Sewanee whipped the 
Texas Aggies the next afternoon, a 

The 400 miles left to New Orle- 
ans denied the Tigers a dance in 
Houston. The players did attend a 
theatre performance on Saturday 
evening, after Tulane had been 
trounced, 23-0. 

In the play's ("Rupert of 
Hentzan") final act the dead hero 
was on stage in state when Queen 
Flavia rushed on in royal mourning 
clothes of purple. 

That was Sewanee's color. The 
players leaped up and rendered 
their school's yell. Actors and audi- 
ence were mystified. The dramatic 
spell was lost, like Texas, A&M, 
and Tulane had. 

And LSU was to lose in Baton 
Rouge on Monday, and Ole Miss in 
Memphis on Tuesday. 

On Sunday, break day, Sewanee 
players toured a sugar plantation 
on a detour to Baton Rouge. They 
cheered for the purple cane. 

LSU's color is purple also, and so 
were their bruises. Ole Miss colors 
were red and black. So were their 
feelings late Tuesday. 

The 300-miles from Memphis to 
Sewanee were uneventful for a 
team headed home. The entire stu- 
dent body, 'tis written, met the 

There was a triumphant half-mile 
parade up the mountain to the cam- 
pus. Students had rented a hack. 
They rope-pulled it up the slope 
with twenty-one celebrities aboard. 

Six days, five football games, five 
victories — and a bid for history. On 
the seventh day Sewanee records it, 
"they rested." 

Members of the Ed Hine family stop for a picture with the commendation 
presented to their father and husband for his service to the Associated 
Alumni. Hine served as Vice-President for Admissions and also Vice- 
President for Regions. He was also instrumental in the formation of the 
Rome. Genrpin Reumnpp Club. Hine was unable to attend the ceremony. 

Reconfirming the Oxford Ties 

Near noon of Homecoming Satur- 
day, October 27, Robert M. Gamble, 
C'34, presented to duPont Library a 
collection of memorabilia, dating 
from the publication of the 1934 Cap 
and Gown, with related correspond- 
ence from Lord Halifax, Chancellor 
of the University of Oxford. This me- 
morabilia, on display in the library,

by Robert M. Gamble, C'34 

It has been a long anticipated pleas- 
ure to be here this morning to see 
you, Dr. Ayres, and to view the fa- 
miliar faces of members of the class 
of 1934 with their wives and others 
and to present this memorabilia as 
a memorial to our class of 1934 at 
our fiftieth reunion. I also want to 
thank "Doc" Cravens, our class 
president, for allowing me the privi- 
lege of designating this offering as a 
memorial to the class of 1934. 

I thought that you would like to 
hear the story of how the end result 
was achieved, because it was not 
quite as simple as writing a letter 
to the Lord Halifax and receiving 
the portrait and letter by return 

In 1933 the Cap and Gown 
printed seventy-five copies, as I re- 
call. In 1934 we printed 225 copies. 
The principal reason we tripled the 
circulation was that Ike Ball, the 
business manager of the Cap and 
Gown, had a wonderful idea. He 
would station himself outside the 
admissions office as the freshmen 
and other new students were regis- 
tering, literally waylaying them 
into ordering a Cap and Gown. 
These poor unsuspecting freshmen 
bought over 100 copies, and with 
additional selling we attained our 
quota. Twice as much advertising 
was sold as ever before, thanks in 
large part to Ike Ball. We now had 
the money to publish the largest 
and most expensive Cap and Gown 
up to that time. We were off and 

My business is advertising, as 
some of you may know. One of the 
most important reasons to buy ad- 
vertising in a publication is the cost 
per thousand copies in which a full- 
page ad is printed. For example, the 
New Yorker costs about $25 per 
thousand copies for a full page. I 
shudder when I realize that with to- 
day's inflation, the 1934 Cap and 
Gown cost our loyal advertisers the 
equivalent today of about $2,500 
per thousand copies. Believe me, 
they were loyal advertisers! 

I thought of the idea of dedicating 
the Cap and Gown to Oxford and 
our Rhodes scholars one summer 
day in 1933 after playing tennis at 
the University Club of Memphis. I 
was very conscious of Oxford after 
Teddy Burwell, Sewanee's finest 

tennis player, had been selected as 
a Rhodes scholar in 1932; he and I 
had corresponded fairly frequently 
during the following year. I particu- 
larly remembered that he played 
tennis against some old unidenti- 
fied man on the Riviera in a tourna- 
ment and beat him 6-0, 6-0 only to 
find out after the match that he was 
the King of Sweden and that no- 
body was supposed to beat him that 
badly. Burwell had gone on the 
court without being told! He also 
had had Henri Cochet of France, 
then the world's greatest player, 
down two sets to one and 2-1 in the 
fourth set at Wimbledon in the 
summer of 1933 before finally 

It seemed perfectly natural, 
therefore, to dedicate the 1934 Cap 
and Gown to Oxford University and 
the Rhodes scholars from Sewanee. 
In any case, the idea of drawings of 
similar views of the two universi- 
ties developed, naturally, but we 
still needed a subject for impact. I 
asked myself: why not testimonials 
from both our own Chancellor, 
Bishop Gailor, and the Chancellor 
of Oxford? I discussed it with 
Bishop Gailor, who suggested that I 
write to Lord Halifax, the new 
Chancellor of Oxford. This I did, 
pointing out Sewanee's relationship 
to Oxford and was extremely disap- 
pointed to be politely turned down 
by his secretary, who said that such 
a testimonial from the Lord Halifax 
would lay him open to requests 
from other universities in America 
which he could not honor. It waked 
me up to the fact that any relation- 
ship which we may have had with 
Oxford was pretty tenuous and 
somewhat one-sided. Nevertheless, 
we were determined to pursue the 
original idea and set about to 
gather together what friends we 
had with whatever influence they 
may have had. 

Assistance did arrive. Shortly 
after the rejection, Miss Ethel M. 
Dell, one of England's most out- 
standing novelists and the Walter 
Hines Page Senior Scholar (Page 
had been the U.S. ambassador to 
Britain during World War I), vis- 
ited the Mountain as a guest of our 
local chapter of the English Speak- 
ing Union. She not only fell in love 
with Sewanee and stayed longer 
than she had planned, but she had 
heard of our dilemma, and we met 
to discuss it. After much corre- 
spondence upon her return to Eng- 
land and my working through her 
and her good friend, the Bishop of 
London in Fulham Palace, and 
Bishop Gailor plus a much more 
comprehensive letter about Sewa- 
nee from me to the Lord Halifax, we 
finally were able to strongly regis- 
ter our small but illustrious Univer- 
sity on the Mountain in the mind of 
one of Britain's most distinguished 
leaders, a man who could have been 
prime minister instead of Winston 
Churchill had he chosen it. 

You see the result. 

Just prior to World War II, when 
Halifax was appointed ambassador 
to the United States, I was on the

Ayres join Robert Gamble, C'34, right, at a special presentation of Lord 
Halifax and Cap and Gown material given by Mr. Gamble. 

staff of the Herald Tribune and 
made available to my paper the por- 
trait and letter for publication. The 
Tribune published them, giving Se- 
wanee wonderful publicity in a very 
select market (I personally got 
about twenty phone calls about the 
story) and in so doing "scooped" the 
whole country including our arch ri- 
val the New York Times. 

Several years after World War II 
ended, I belonged to a small group 
of tennis players in Washington. 
One of this group was the then Brit- 
ish ambassador to this country, Sir 
Roger Meekins, whose doubles part- 
ner I was on a number of occasions. 
You can rest assured that I re- 
counted the Halifax story to him in 
great detail to his considerable in- 
terest and amusement. 

Despite our size and the low pro- 
file Sewanee has always main- 
tained, we now know that at least 
two British ambassadors to Wash- 
ington have had the story of our 
own University firmly embedded in 
their minds. 

It is also fitting that we honor our 
first seven Rhodes scholars fifty 
years later on this occasion. They 

It is, therefore, with great pleas- 
ure, Dr. Ayres, that I present the 
Halifax memorabilia, which I have 
carried around with me for more 
than fifty years over a good portion 
of this country, to you and the Uni- 
versity as a memorial to the class of 
1934. Thank you very much for this 

Dr. Henry M. Gass, 1907

It is hoped that in honoring Ox- 
ford University and her then Chan- 
cellor, as well as our own Rhodes 
scholars, that the "further strength- 
ening of the ties" will continue una- 
bated in the future. 

Mr. and Mrs. William Spencer 
pause in front of Rebel's Rest shortly 
before the Homecoming parade. 

The traditional Sewanee din- 
ner will be held during the 
week of the Episcopal General 
Convention, September 7-14, 
1985, in Anaheim, California. 
The exact time and location of 
the dinner will be announced 
later. All Sewanee alumni are 
welcome to attend. 

■ Alumni 
Funds Grow 

Phase Two— the Alumni Phase— of 
the Century II Campaign is well 
under way, and about $300,000 of 
the $1 million goal has been raised 
largely by alumni volunteers partic 
ipating in nine phonathons held 
throughout the South. 

When the goal for the Alumni 
Phase is reached, the $1 million 
will be used to endow an alumni 

Successful September and Octo- 
ber phonathons in Atlanta, Bir- 
mingham, and New Orleans provide 
examples of what alumni can ac- 
complish with their classmates and 

In Atlanta on September 16, 
twelve volunteers gathered at the 
Kidder-Peabody offices in the First 
National Bank Tower and raised 
more than $21,000 in pledges in a 
two-hour phonathon. Their personal 
solicitation visits and additional 
contacts as a result of their calls 
have increased the total 

Area chairman Cosmo Boyd, 
C'74, led the group consisting of 
Bruce Brooks, C'69; Bob Campbell, 
C'57; Dan Edwards. C'70; Don Ellis, 
C'70; John Grubb, C'68; Dennis 
Hall, C'69; Morgan Hall, C'39; 
Bryan Starr, C'68; Joe Brittain, 
C'63; Oscie Gordon, 071; Jim Link, 
C , 61;andJimGrier l C'76. 

In New Orleans on October 21, 
ten alumni, led by chairman M. 
Field Gomila, C'61, made calls from 

the Honeywell offices made avail- 
able by Robert T. Owens, C'60. 
Louis W. Rice III, C'73, commenting 
on the phonathon, said: "It didn't 
take long for the calling to start, 
and once it began, the enthusiasm 
was infectious." 

Others participating were Joseph 
H. Tucker, C'61; Robert T. Owen, 
C'60; Romualdo Gonzalez, A'66, 
C'70; Anne Bryson, C'74; Stratton 
Orr, C'73; Doug Lore, C'54; Tom 
Cowan, C'74; and Fred Devall, C'60. 

In one evening, they raised 
$11,415, and personal visits and ad- 
ditional telephone calls in the days 
that followed pushed the total for 
New Orleans much higher. The fig- 
ures are still being compiled. 

The results have been even better 
in Birmingham. On the night of the 
phonathon, eighteen alumni gath- 
ered at the South Central Bell 
building under the chairmanship of 
Martin R. Tilson, Jr., C'74, and col- 
lected pledges totalling $28,075. 

In both Birmingham and New Or- 
leans, a series of meetings was held 
for volunteers to lay plans for the 
solicitations and to make follow-up 
reports about personal visits and 
calls after the night of the phona- 
thon. The total for the Birmingham 
effort climbed to well over $50,000 
within three weeks of the 

Among those participating in the 
Birmingham effort were Warren 
Belser, C'50; Peyton Bibb, C'63; 
Chris Boehm, C'74; Joanne Boyd, 
C'77; Bucky Cater, C'57; John 
Corey, C'49; Flowers Crawford,

A Tribute to 
Dr. Lancaster 

During Homecoming this fall a 
number of graduates met on the 
campus to establish a scholarship 
fund as a living tribute to Robert S. 
Lancaster, former dean and emeri- 
tus professor of political science. 

These alumni, all former students 
of the "red dean," formed a commit- 
tee, and each member of the com- 
mittee agreed to raise at least 
$5,000 to complete the fund. 

The committee members include 
Timothy Holder. C'77; R. Horton 
Frank III, C'77; Fred Freeman III, 
C'76; Fred McLaughlin, C'80; 
Thomas Summers McNeil, C'70; 
Robert Morton, C'73; George Neary 
C'70; John Popham IV, C'71; James 
Snider, C'75; M. Clark Spoden 
C'77; William Weaver UI, C'64; 
Dudley West, C'77; and James Wil- 
son EI, C'73. 

The scholarship will be awarded 
to a rising junior for two years, and 
a new award winner will be an- . 
nounced each year at commence- 
ment, so that two students a year 
will be receiving the scholarship. 

Representatives of the founders' 
committee will participate in the se- 

lection i 

The committee's statement speci- 
fies that "it is the intent of the foun- 
ders that the scholarship be 
awarded to encourage and perpetu- 
ate those characteristics of aca- 
demic excellence and personal 
leadership exemplified by Dr. Lan- 
caster and so admired by his former 

Robert S. Lancaster's presence at 
Sewanee dates to 1931 when he be- 
gan teaching at Sewanee Military 
Academy. Subsequently he became 
commandant of cadets. Having re- 
ceived his bachelor's degree from 
Hampden-Sydney, he later earned 
an M.A. from Sewanee and studied 
law at Andrew Jackson University. 
After a period of practicing law in 
his native Virginia and then serv- 
ing as a Navy intelligence officer 
during World War II, he returned to 
SMA for three years before being 
invited to join the political science 
department in the College. He 
earned his Ph.D. from the Univer- 
sity of Michigan in 1952 and be- 
came full professor in 1955. He was 
also dean of men from 1953 to 1957 
and dean of the College from 1957 
to 1968 and served Sewanee as act- 
ing director of development and vol- 
unteer chairman of the Million 
Dollar Campaign. 

Persons wishing to participate 
are invited to write to Tim Holder, 
P.O. Box 22653, Jackson, Missis- 
sippi 39225, or to Mark Oliver at 
the University of the South. 

Williams Suit 

A will contest by Tennessee Wil- 
liams's brother, Dakin Williams, 
was settled out of court in April 
when Dakin agreed to take 
$100,000 and drop the suit. 

The settlement includes $25,000 
Dakin Williams would have re- 
ceived in any case under the will. 

Edward W. Watson, C'30, the Uni- 
versity's legal counsel, said he seri- 
ously doubts that Dakin Williams 
could have won the suit and termed 
the $100,000 a "nuisance settle- 
ment." He said it would have cost 
the estate more than $100,000 to 
follow the litigation even to a suc- 
cessful conclusion. 

Dakin Williams was contending 
in his suit that his brother cut him 
out of his will after he arranged to 
have the playwright committed to a 
hospital in 1969 for treatment of 
drug and alcohol addiction. 

Tennessee Williams died early 
last year, leaving a will that makes 
the University a major residual ben- 
eficiarv. After the (tenth nf Wil. 

liams's sister, Rose Williams, the 
remaining proceeds of the estate 
will be used to establish a fund at 
Sewanee to encourage creative writ- 
ing and creative writers. The fund 
is to be called the Walter E. Dakin 
Memorial Fund in memory of Ten- 
nessee Williams's grandfather, an 
alumnus of the School of Theology. 
Estimates of the value of the es- 
tate vary from $5 million to $11 




C'79, will be shocked and sad- 
dened by the news of his death on 
November 6, 1984. The bicycle he 
was riding was struck by an 
auto. His family and friends have 
established an endowed scholar- 
ship in his memory. Memorial 
gifts, payable to the University of 
the South, may be sent to Mark

Sewanee in Full Color 

If you receive the Sewanee News, 
you likely also received earlier this 
fall a colorful direct-mail advertise- 
ment for a book entitled Sewanee, 
which is being published by Har- 
mony House Publishers of Louis- 
ville, Kentucky. 

The instigator of this publishing 
effort is William S. Butt, C'71, a 
partner of Harmony House and 
president of a Louisville advertising 
agency. He was impressed with 
books done for Harvard. Dart- 
mouth, and the University of Vir- 
ginia, all with the generous use of 
photographs, and he knew that Se- 
wanee's campus would be equally 
impressive between the covers of a 

His partner in the project is Wil- 
liam Strode, twice co-recipient of 
the Pulitzer Prize for his photogra- 
phy and the recipient of r 

other national photography awards. 
In addition to being the author of 
one book, his photographs have ap- 
peared in many other books, includ- 
ing the Time-Life series and 
National Geographic books. 

Strode and Butt worked together 
in 1973 for the book division of the 
Louisville Courier Journal and 
Times. Later Butt worked for a 
large Louisville advertising agency 
and then formed his own firm, 
Courier Marketing and Advertising 
Agency. His company specializes in 
technical writing for trade and in- 
dustrial firms. 

Harmony House is a new and 
seemingly more exciting venture. 
Earlier this year, Butt and Strode 
published a photographic book fo- 
cusing on the Kentucky Governor's 
Mansion at the request of Phyllis 
George Brown. While that was in 

process more than a year ago, they 
approached Beeler Brush, Univer- 
sity alumni director, about the pos- 
sibility of producing a book about 
Sewanee. That conversation was 
followed by more than a dozen visits 
to the campus to plan and gather 
photographs and other material. 

Typed copy for the book includes 
short excerpts from the work of An- 
drew Lytle, Allen Tate, Peter Tay- 
lor, William Alexnder Percy, and 
Richard Tillinghast. Mrs. Elizabeth 
N. Chitty, University associate his- 
toriographer, prepared text for the 
photographs and a section of 

The initial ninety-six page first 
edition is hardbound and contains 
sixty color photographs. Before nar- 
rowing down the selection to sixty 
photographs, Strode took 8,000 to 
10,000 images, 1,000 shots in one 

trip alone. 

Butt cautions that hardbound 
copies after the initial printing may 
be scarce, which is why early orders 
were important. The University 
will use the book in various ways, 
and the book will be on sale at 
bookstores in Nashville and Chatta- 
nooga. A second printing is being 
considered for next spring. 

Butt and Strode are now taking 
aim at the wider market of college 
picture books, but Butt says the 
greater profits lie in publishing 
books about larger universities, like 
those with several thousand stu- 
dents and 10,000 alumni or more. 

The book about Sewanee was 
largely a labor of love and friend- 
ship. We all knew Sewanee would 
make a great book in full color. 
Now we have one. 

The Supreme Court and Football, 
Ice Cream and Willie Six 

by Smith Hempstone, C'50 

The news that the Supreme Court 
has voted 7-2 to allow individual 
colleges and universities to make 
separate deals with the networks to 
get their games televised is unlikely 
to send a tremor of excitement 
through the athletic community at 
my alma mater, the University of 
the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. 

In its proud 127-year history, no 
Sewanee football team has appeared 
on television, and none is likely to. 

This does not mean that Sewanee, 
a coeducational liberal arts school 
owned by the Episcopal Church, is 
not rich in pigskin lore. It means 
simply that the folks who run 
schools with an enrollment of 1,000 
tend not to confuse games (which 
are all very well in their place) with 

Sewanee gives no scholarships or 
any other form of financial aid to 
athletes. The closest anybody came 
to breaking this rule was back in 
1949, when Coach "Buckwheat" 
White lured "Speedy" Flowers, the 
scion of a famous Tennessee football 
clan, up to the Mountain for a look- 
see. (Yes, Sewanee is on a moun- 
taintop in Tennessee, not on the 
banks of a Florida river. That's 
spelled Suwannee.) 

After he'd shown him around, 
Coach White bought the lusted- 
after lineman a double-dip ice 
cream cone. "Speedy" ended up at 
the University of Tennessee, having 
succumbed to the fleshpots of 

Sewanee, while it has produced 
some fine athletes — Kyle Rote, Jr., 
is one — breeds far more Rhodes 
Scholars and bishops than profes- 

sional wide receivers. This year's 
big Homecoming game, for instance, 
is against Rose-Hulman Tech of 
Terre Haute, Ind. You get my drift. 



Greek or Hebrew at Sewanee than 
the Split T, which brings to mind 
the linguistic discussion back in the 
1960s between Vice-Chancellor Ed- 
ward McCrady and Athletic Direc- 
tor Walter Bryant. 

Just the previous year, Coach 
Bryant had been to Washington for 
the annual convention of athletic di- 
rectors. Never at his best in early 
morning, he had been awakened 
from the sleep of the just at the 
Washington Hilton by a call from 
the White House inviting him to 

"I accepted, thinking that was 
right neighborly of them, since I 

Dr. McCrady, an accomplished 
classical scholar and nuclear physi- 
cist, had strolled over to the gym- to 
pick up his free football tickets — 
there was no point in trying to sell 
them — for the coming season. He 
asked Coach Bryant who the open- 
ing day opponent was. 

"Principia," answered Coach 
Bryant, pronouncing the second syl- 
lable like what you do to Jack Dan- 
iels, which is produced not thirty 
miles from Sewanee. 

"The Latin word is pronounced 
Prin— CHIP— ia, Walter," corrected 
Dr. McCrady. 

"That may be so, Vice-Chancel- 
lor," replied Coach Bryant, "but 
we're only playing them in football, 
not Latin." 


was away from home and all," re- 
calls Coach Bryant. Then a thought 
occurred to him and he called the 
White House back. 

"I think you may have made a 
mistake, ma'am," he said to the 
switchboard operator. "I'm Coach 
Walter Bryant; I have a feeling it 
may be Coach Bear Bryant you 
folks are after." And it was. 

Back in Coach Bryant's day (and 
mine), there may have been more 
dogs than people at the games, but 
the people who came took football 
seriously. We had a black trainer, 
for instance, nicknamed Willie Six, 
who repaired our battered bodies 
after we'd been savaged by such 
giants as Millsaps or Hampden- 

Willie Six, who lies buried now 
among scholars and archdeacons in 
Sewanee's quiet cemetery, earned 
this sobriquet because, in thirty 
seasons, he had never seen a touch- 
down scored against Sewanee. He 
had accomplished this simply by 
turning his back on the playing 
field any time our opponent got 
within our 20-yard line. 

Sewanee had, as a matter of fact, 
basked in its glory years in football. 
Back in 1899, when Sewanee was 
still a member of the powerful 
Southeastern Conference, we were 
national champions. 

In that golden season, Sewanee 
was undefeated in twelve games, 
running up 322 points to a cumula- 
tive total of ten (all scored by Au- 
burn) for its opponents. Among the 
vanquished were numbered such 
powerhouses as Georgia (12-0), 
Georgia Tech (32-0), and Tennessee 
(46-0). * 

In one unbelievable six-day pe- 
riod, Nov. 9-14, the Purple Tigers 
humbled five proud foes: Texas (12- 
0), Texas A&M (10-0), Tulane (23-0), 
LSU (34-0), and Ole Miss (12-0). 

Then, on the seventh day, being 
Episcopalians and gentlemen, they 

Come to think of it, I may drop 
down to Sewanee for Homecoming. 
Providing the fog doesn't settle too 
early on the Mountain, Rose-Hul- 
man could give us an exciting game.

A somewhat plain-looking little

this fall, its flimsy cover belying the 
wealth of clever and compelling

through its pages. 

The book is by Lewis C. Burwell,

book (biography or autobiography). 
In The Climb Is Fun, Col. Burwell 
provides a collection of "mini-lec-

for use at career workshops for col-

He has already led one such work- 
shop at Clemson University and is 
scheduled to conduct another in 
January at Furman.

by Charles E. Thomas, C'27 

Colonel Lewis Carter Burwell, Jr., 
has successfully evolved three dis- 
tinct careers in one crowded and 
full lifetime. These differing, yet 
not completely disparate, pursuits 
have been accomplished through 
planning and work, plus imagina- 
tive and sometimes bold efforts and 

Born in Charlotte, North Caro- 
lina, he was graduated with honors 
(cum laude) from the University of 
the South at Sewanee. Already am- 
bitious to reach the sky, he enlisted 
as a flying cadet in the United 
States Air Corps Flying School at 
San Antonio. 

After learning the fundamentals 
as an air cadet, he returned to 
Charlotte and began a bold innova- 
tive new business in financial plan- 
ning, organizing Plans, Inc., with 
offices eventually in Charlotte, 
Houston, New York, Washington, 
and Miami. Flying his own plane, 
he was a pioneer in a diversified 
business operation of considerable 
magnitude. Through the years and 
other interests, he remains Presi- 
dent of Plans, Inc. Early in this 
"first career," he found time to earn 
a CLU (Certified Life Underwriter) 
degree from Wharton School at the 
University of Pennsysvania. 

Shortly after this time, he and his 
brother, "Teddy" Burwell, won the 
North Carolina tennis doubles 
championship. "Teddy" (Clayton L. 
Burwell), also a Sewanee graduate, 
received two degrees at Merton Col- 
lege, Oxford, as a Rhodes scholar 
and another at the University of 
North Carolina Law School. 

With the coming of World War II, 
"Squeak," as the future Air Force 
colonel was popularly known, re- 
ceived a commission as captain. 
During four years active duty, in- 
cluding a combat tour in CBI 
(China, Burma-India) as squadron 
commander, he flew 308 combat 
missions and won most of the avail- 
able decorations. Among these were 
air medals (3), Bronze Star with V, 
Distinguished Flying Cross (3), 

One Life, Many Roads 

Chinese Grand Star of Honor, Y'un 
Hui Medal with special collar rib- 
bon, and a Presidential Unit Cita- 
tion. He returned to inactive duty 
as a lieutenant colonel with impor- 
tant Reserve assignments. He 
served as chief of plans and pro- 
grams, Directorate of Transporta- 
tion of the Air Force headquarters 
in Washington; deputy commander 
1607 Wing (H) MATS, Dover, Dela- 
ware; deputy commander Sixty-sec- 
ond Air Division, ADC, Dobbins 
AFB, Georgia; and deputy com- 
mander WRAMA, Air Force Logis- 
tics Command, Robins AFB, 

He was made an honorary pilot of 
the Chinese Air Force and awarded 
the China War Memorial Medal be- 
fore he retired as a colonel, USAF 
and command pilot, having a total 
of approximately 20,000 flying 

With a second career successfully 
carried through, after the War Colo- 
nel Burwell organized Resort Air- 
lines, which pioneered in 
"Sky cruises" — all expense "package 
tours." From president of Resort, he 
moved to vice president and assist- 
ant to the president of the Flying 
Tiger line. Next, he served as chair- 
man of the board of Overseas Na- 
tional Airways. With his older sons 
completing military duty in 1972, 
he organized and became chairman 
of the board of Pinehurst Airlines. 

As a director of twenty-four cor- 
porations in the United States, Eng- 
land, Canada, and the Bahamas, he 
also was a director of Transporta- 
tion Consultants, Inc., Washington, 

Colonel Burwell is listed in Who's 
Who in America, Who's Who in the 
World, Men of Achievement, Cam- 
bridge, England, Royal Blue Book 
(Leaders of the English Speaking 

World), London, England. A mem- 
ber of Sigma Nu fraternity and an 
Episcopalian, he is a member of 
various social, professional, and 
service clubs. 

He is the author of Scrapbook and 
of numerous transportation and air 
studies for Pakistan, 1963; Alaska, 
1964; Central America, 1965; Saudi 
Arabia, 1967; and Washington Na- 
tional Airport, 1970; as well as for 
the State Department, United 
States Senate, and other govern- 
ment agencies. 

He has lectured and exhibited at 
American University in Washing- 
ton, D.C, at the fourteenth Air 
Force (Flying Tiger) Museum at 
Dobbins AFB, Georgia; at the Army 
Transportation Corps at Fort Eus- 
tis, Virginia; and at the British War 
Museum in London. 

With three careers successfully 
accomplished, he is far from retired. 
His services, experiences, and 
knowledge are still in demand as 
consultant, advisor, director, writer, 
and lecturer. He has served his 
alma mater, The University of the 
South, as a trustee, where he, his 
brother, and his sister have memo- 
rialized their mother and father 
(the latter, also a former trustee of 
the University) in the development 
and endowment of the Burwell Gar- 
dens beside All Saints' Chapel at 
the base of Shapard Tower on the 
mountaintop campus at Sewanee, 

As a businessman in financial 
management and planning, as a 
distinguished and much decorated 
combat war pilot, and as a presi- 
dent, director, and advisor in a wide 
field of aviation development and 
transportation, Lewis Burwell has 
telescoped a wide range of planning 
and work into three highly success- 
ful careers. His success shows the 
results of The Climb is Fun.

Too Many Crossroads 

by Lewis C. Burwell, C28 

In my long life, I have known many 
who appeared to have gone down 
too many crossroads and lit too 
many fires. I may be one of them. 
After college I enlisted as a flying 
cadet in the Army Flight School at 
San Antonio, Texas. This was 1929. 
Shortly thereafter, I was ignomi- 
niously washed out by the chief 
flight instructor, who said, "You 
lack the inherent skills to become 
an Army pilot." Fifteen years later, 
I flew this man and his staff from a 
muddy little Chinese field named 
Peishei to his Kunming headquar- 
ters. The weather was very rough 
and the mountains very high. It 
was an on-edge flight. I compli- 
mented him and thanked him for 
his help as co-pilot. His name was 
General Claire Lee Chennault. We 
became great friends. I was one of 
his devoted squadron commanders 
for a year. 

Jobs were pretty scarce when I re- 
turned to Charlotte, North Caro- 
lina, in 1930, after my short Army 
tour. The stock market had crashed 
spectacularly the preceding October 
and the banks were beginning to 
close. I took the path of least resist- 
ance and went into the life insur- 
ance business. Times were tough, 
but I stuck it out. A quarter at the 
grocery store would buy two eggs, a 
quart of milk, and a loaf of bread. In 
1934, 1 earned the CLU degree from 
the Wharton School at Penn by cor- 
respondence, going to the campus 
for exams. In 1941, my last year be- 
fore going into service, I led all 
other life insurance salesmen in the 
United States. In 1937, 1 built a 
four-bedroom, four-bath house in a 
prime residential district for 
$11,750. I was informed recently 
that this house sold for $1 15,000. 

Handling the Job 

Don't be a loner. Make other peo- 
ple's problems your own. Do your 
job or mission in the context of the 
big picture, your long-range goals 
and those of the company. Respond 
to all queries: "yes," "no," or "work- 
ing on it," and in timely fashion. 
Don't let an assignment gather 
dust. Respond instantly. 

Business communications is an 
intricate art. You must master this 
at an early stage. Write it down, 
use one-line memos, not oral mes- 
sages. Odds are your responsibili- 
ties will be in some phase of 
operations. Remember the story of 
the monkey who was the oracle of 
the jungle. One day a centipede 
came to him and said, "Mr. Monkey, 
I have gout and I hurt in a hundred 
places. What should I do?" "Turn 
yourself into a quadruped and you 
won't hurt but in four places," was 
the answer. "But, Mr Monkey, how 
do I do that?" "That's an operations 
problem; I only set policy," said the 
monkey. Stick to your operations 
and confine your policy impulses to 
the company suggestion box until

It was well over fifty years ago 
when I first became aware of the 
University of the South. I was an 
undergraduate at Stanford Univer- 
sity and a habitue of their library. 
Even then I loved books. Each day, 
as new publications arrived, they 
were thrown on a table in the cen- 
tral foyer of the library. I usually 
dropped by to check anything that 
might interest me. It was there that 
I came across a copy of the Sewanee 
Review. In that issue there was a 
story about the University which 
interested me. 

I had been born in California and 
raised there. What I read in the Re- 
view whetted an interest to explore 
new pastures, new people, and, 
quite possibly, new cultures. I 
learned that Sewanee was one of 
the few universities at that time on 
a quarter system, as was Stanford, 
and when spring vacation came in 
1927 I boldly decided to adventure 
out. In my little blue Chrysler 
roadster I started across the coun- 
try, through Arizona, New Mexico, 
and the dreary stretches of West 
Texas. When I arrived at Texar- 
kana I was told that the Mississippi 
River was in flood and that it would 
probably be impossible to reach 
Tennessee. At that stage I was not 
to be thwarted, and most of the 
night I slushed through roads hub- 
deep in water, guided only by mark- 
ers on either side of the road. For 
four hours I never saw another car 
until I finally arrived at the bridge 
across the river into Memphis. I 
was the last one to make that trip 
for weeks. 

The next morning I checked with 
the Automobile Club, only to find 
that the road to Nashville was im- 
passable. They charted a route for 
me south through Mississippi and 
Alabama and back into a town 
called, as I recall, Fayetteville. 
From there it was an easy trip up to 
Nashville and then down the Dixie 
Highway to Sewanee. I arrived 
about dinner time and found the 
Tuckaway inn, which then offered 
both room and board. It was a bless- 
ing to have finally arrived at my 
destination, and I was relaxing with 

> of Miss Johnny Tucker's fine 
dinners when a couple of lads from 

eighbori ng table came over to 
chat. I mentioned that I was from 
California and had planned to en- 
roll that semester in the University. 
They said they were Kappa Sigmas 
and would be pleased if I would 
visit their house. They were Francis 
Thigpen and Bill Jordan. I had to 
explain that I was already a mem- 

An Initiation to Sewanee 
in Knickerbocker's Day 

ber of Phi Gamma Delta. Gra- 
ciously, they then introduced me to 
Henry Sanford, a member of Phi 
Gamma Delta, who was eating at a 
nearby table. 

The next day I was registered, 
writing my name in humble awe in 
that folio volume in which 3,960 
former matriculants had preceded 
me in writing theirs. I felt that I 
was joining a tradition. This was 
the Epiphany Term of 1927. 1 was 
assigned a room in the Sewanee Inn 
across from Tuckaway. It has since 
been transformed into Elliott Hall, 
but it was then used as a dormitory 
during the school terms and as an 
inn during the summer tourist 
months. Across the highway was 
the Phi Gam house, where I found 
many immediate friends such as 

Paul Tate, Alex Spencer, and 
"Sleepy" Neal. 

My initiation into the use and 
abuse of white corn whiskey was 
disastrous. It was during prohibi- 
tion, and while we had an occa- 
sional drink while I was at 
Stanford, especially at the "Big 
Game" with the University of Cali- 
fornia, I was not used to Tennessee 
customs. My roommate in the Inn 
was a personable and articulate 
freshman from Florida by the name 
of Kay Porter. He early introduced 
me to our closest neighbors. Each 
seemed to have a cache of corn liq- 
uor in his room, some of the more 
sophisticated even had a small oak 
cask in which they aged it for a few 
weeks. Merle Uhlig, tall and hand- 
some, with perhaps a strain of pure 

Indian blood in his veins, was my 
first host. A small group of fellows 
gathered in his room: Frank Brun- 
ner, Harry Cain, Barry Moeser, Na- 
than Crawford, together with 
Porter and myself. I thought of my- 
self as sophisticated enough to take 
care of myself in any college com- 
pany, but I found out differently. I 
didn't know Sewanee men. Uhlig 
poured some white medication into 
one of the thick glass tumblers we 
had in our rooms. It was about half 
full, and he drank it down in one 
gulp. Others followed. When my 
turn came, I repeated, except that 
when I started to drink my throat 
contracted. I couldn't breathe, and 
the whole great gulp exploded over 
the other occupants of the room. 
What a waste! 

My first, and still lasting, impres- 
sion of Sewanee was of age and tra- 
dition. The matriculation book in 
which I had written my name, age, 
weight, and height first impressed 
me. The buildings had the age-old 
appearance of Oxford in America, 
and the trees had been there for- 
ever, and the ivy-covered walls of 
the halls. But perhaps what most 
impressed me was when I first 
climbed the stairs in Walsh Hall 
and saw how they had been worn 
with deep grooves by generations of 
students. As I climbed those stairs, 
I became part of history and stu- 
dents past. I was proud to add my 
wear to theirs and was disappointed 
when I returned for my fiftieth re- 
union to find this memory had been 
replaced by a polished new stair- 
way. Another shattered memory on 
returning was of the library, a 
beautiful, warm haven where I 
sought solace almost every day 
among the open stacks and the 
pleasure of relaxing and reading in 
such comfort under the scrutinizing 
gazes of the red-robed Bishops, 
whose pictures hung from the walls. 
The new library is beautiful and 
functional, but it can never make 
me feel to be the medieval scholar I 
felt I was in those old surroundings. 
Marian Wright helped. She was as- 
sistant librarian and one of the 
early coeds in the summer sessions. 
Her family lived close by and her 
brother, James, was a fraternity 
brother. I remember many happy 
times at their place and especially 
their pretty younger sister, Jean 
(Mrs. James Brettmann), with 
whom I would often go down to visit 
in Winchester at the stately old 
home of another fraternity brother, 
Chester Chattin. Those were de- 
lightful and nostalgic days.

you get into the monkey's job. 

But don't get lost in detail and 
don't be an efficiency nut. Avoid the 
temptation to pick fly specks out of 
pepper. Think Big and remember 
the story of the little eight-year-old 
boy who was the protege of his 
banker father. When the father 
came home one day there was a 

sign in the yard: "Dog for Sale — 
$$50,000." The next afternoon, the 
sign was gone. "Did you sell your 
dog?" asked the father. "Yes, sir," 
was the answer. 'Tell me, Son, did 
you get your price?" "Sure," was the 
answer, "I traded him for two 
$25,000 cats." 

Volunteer your views to manage-

them on paper. Spoken words have 
no shelf life. Your idea's time may 

come later. Keep it alive this way. 
Write clearly and concisely; remem- 
ber words are only tools. Use them 
sparingly. Many good ideas suffo- 
cate in the verbiage. Like the para-

powerful; the more homely, the 
more powerful. In my early days in 
Charlotte, I tried to sell a wholesale 
harness company to Springs Mills. 
Elliott Springs told me I should 
merge it with the Grand Army of 

the Republic, "talk to Ulysses Grant 
about it." I got the point fast. 
Again, keep score. You are building 
a record. Keep it fully and accu-

plan each tomorrow. Your critical 
path chart will show you at least 
where you should be, even though 
lost for the moment. In flying, we 
call this dead reckoning. Literally, 
you must take these navigational 
fixes everyday of your life. 

An Initiation c 

My selection of professors during 
my brief stay at Sewanee was for- 
tunate. I best remember a seminar 
with Eugene Kayden. It was un- 
doubtedly the most stimulating 
class I ever had, and I attended 
many colleges: Stanford, Occiden- 
tal, CalTech, and USC. There were 
only five or six of us in the class, 
and we met in Kayden's book-lined 
office, relaxing in easy chairs as he 
talked and we talked in almost So- 
cratic communion. I wish I could re- 
member who the others were. They 
were brilliant. 

William Knickerbocker was an- 
other professor I enjoyed through a 
course in Victorian poetry: Brown- 
ing and Tennyson. He was also the 
editor of the Sewanee Review, and 
some years later he excerpted a bit 
from an article I had written to put 
on the back cover of his magazine: 
"Sewanee was, perhaps, nearer to 
what I had always dreamed a col- 
lege to be than any of our modern 
and western universities. I had dis- 
covered it through the Sewanee Re- 
view and I found it to be all that I 
could have hoped for. Years later 
when I saw Oxford I realized what 
had been its model." 

Up until then I had been swept 
along on the stream of the middle 
twenties and had taken, in the 
main, such courses as would even- 
tually lead me to law school. The 
musty sandstone library at Sewa- 
nee, crowded with portraits and rel- 
ics and old books, with its Gothic 
windows, its ivy, and its meadow- 
green lawn; and the nights when I'd 
sit with one or two or three others 
under the elms on the edge of the 
Dixie Highway, talking of George 
Moore, Rossetti, and Paul Cezanne, 
made me impatient with the future 
I was planning. 

I occasionally played a little 
bridge with "Fuzzy" Ware and took 
a course from that wonderful man, 
Major Henry Gass. Merle Uhlig and 
I collaborated on writing a play 
which exempted us from attending 
class regularly. This left me more 
time to spend in my favorite spot, 
the library. 

I have always preferred late- 
night hours to the early-morning 
ones. The required early chapel of 
those days was particularly painful. 
Fortunately for me Barry Moeser 
was a proctor who took roll, and I 
bargained with him to pick up his 
mail in town each day if he would 
mark me present for chapel. Thus I 
got an extra hour of sleep in the 
morning. Religion was a required 
course, and while I disliked chapel, 
because of the hour, I really enjoyed 
my course in religion. I wish I could 
remember the name of one of the 
most tolerant of professors who 
gave this course. It was a large 
class by Sewanee standards, some 
thirty students. When roll was to be 
called, our professor would bury his 
head as he read off the names 

slowly. Each would answer "pres- 
ent," and most would then quietly 
tiptoe out the door leaving only a 
half dozen of us to listen to the lec- 
ture. Most thought they had outwit- 
ted this kind professor, but I 
realized that he was interested only 
in those who cared for his course, 
i of good 

I also remember with affection 
John Whittaker, who became a 
close, friefid, "Many a night we would 
while away some time talking 
about books. He was editor of The 
Mountain Goat, and while I was not 
much of a cartoonist, I was the only 
one on campus at that time and so 
waB pressed into service for him. I 
later heard that on being rejected 
for service in World War II, he had 
his back broken and repaired so 
that he would be accepted. He died 
in 1946 as a Colonel. 

While I spent only a short time at 
Sewanee, my recollections after 
more than fifty years are still viv- 
idly clear. Those who lived in the 
Inn ate in the dining room there. 
The training table was also there, 
and as a potential track man I was 
allowed to eat with the other mem- 
bers of the squad and to compete 
against the then great rival of Se- 
wanee — Vanderbilt. But the most 
memorable track meet I remember 
took place well after midnight dur- 
ing the Spring Week festivities. 
With a hundred girls on campus 
and almost continuous events at the 
Commons or the fraternity houses, 
a track meet seems incredible to 
contemplate. However, when the 
dance was over, everyone, or almost 
everyone, filed up to the track, and 
in tuxedos and pumps races were 
run, and jumps were jumped, and 
hurdles skimmed, and shots were 
put. There was no scorekeeper, how- 
ever, so there remains no record of 
the results. Then off to a late date 
or to bed before the Phi Gam break- 
fast the next morning and later fes- 
tivities at the other fraternity 

Such is Memory!
